Assistance for bushfire-affected SME's
Australia's bushfire crisis has had a huge impact on many small businesses.
Laing O'Rourke has been selected by the NSW Government to undertake the first phase of recovery clean-up works following recent bushfires across the NSW. Laing O'Rourke will work with local subcontractors and regional small businesses to ensure they are engaged in the delivery of the clean-up process - providing much-needed stimulus to local economies.
