HOW WE WORK

Our dedicated team will work with you to fully understand the project, the construction methodology and your objectives. Delivering a custom installation that will ensure site managers, engineers and communications people get exactly what they need.

COMMUNICATION IS KEY

We maintain communication with you throughout the project, and if variations to the project schedule mean major milestones are reached sooner, we’re rapidly able to reconfigure our camera setup. Flexibility and adaptability are touchstones of our business.

SAFETY IS KING

At Blackbox, we’re attuned to the procedures and pressures of major project sites. JSA, JHA, PPE, SWMS, MSDS may seem like a jumble of letters but we have a detailed knowledge of OH&S regulations. We’ve built our reputation on taking safety as seriously as our clients do.
