Culhig Surveying assisted Exact Contracting with our feasibility study survey requirements for Tanami Road Section 2 which ends at Yuendumu. We subsequently engaged them for other works on Tanami Section 1. They continued to impress us on a daily basis, they have a wealth of experience with regard to surveying and construction itself and this has had a very positive impact on our project. We will be calling upon their services for future works.
