Projects delivered under time and on budget
Meeting extreme needs of government, local and global clients


Towards the end of 2017 GBL was awarded a contract to complete the works for the first
and second Commonwealth of Australia Pacific Patrol Boat project with Austal Australia.

This vessel, the first of it’s kind, to be fabricated and surface treated within Australia.

Throughout the project, GBL worked alongside Boat Spray, Austal and other contractors

ahead of time and under budget.
