i-LEC has been completing significant electrical works for Cairns Regional Council as part of our City Centre Alive CBD redevelopment project over the past 7 months. I have been very pleased with the standard of work and efficiency in their delivery of the project. I have found i-LEC to be highly responsive and adaptive to changes as they arise and the communication of management and crews on site has exceeded our expectations. I have also been impressed by the wide range of services and plant i-LEC can provide to complement their electrical works.
