One thought on “Timeline

  1. Hi Shire_Synergy,
    We are just getting our plans drawn up now to build a Synergy 32 (Trend 2 facade) in the Sutherland Shire, not far from you guys at Yowie Bay. Would love to talk about the process, even in person, especially about things like the CDC application for demolition, which at this stage I have no idea about.
    Regards, Steve
