De Luca hold a strong long lasting relationship with Resolve that has been established over multiple projects. We will continue to rely on Resolve as we have in the past to provide us with good service, open communication and a reduced risk offering that has helped our businesses succeed together.

I have worked with Daniel and his team at Resolve on many projects over the past few years. We have always appreciated their ability to firstly provide honest, punctual quotes and then complete the contracted works on time with excellent supervision and most importantly, to agreed values.

I am happy to recommend Resolve for complex electrical work, particularly for projects with short timeframes, cutting-edge equipment and multidisciplinary contractor involvement. Their management team are well informed and engaged in the business, their staff experienced and knowledgeable, with a strong organisation standing behind them.
