    Additional Comments:
    Two large and expensive pieces of office furniture have been disposed of due to termite infestations, despite ongoing attempts to fumigate.
    One will not be replaced, the other may be depending on pending quotes. It is hoped that this will halt the issue and that the rest of the office furniture will not be affected.
