19/07/2021. To limit the spread of COVID-19, the NSW Government has increased restrictions within the Greater Sydney area. This means that all site inspections and in person meetings will be paused until July 30, 2021, in line with Government requirements. BFCS P/L will continue working remotely and our team is available, as necessary, to complete all activities that aren't based on-site.
