IN ORDER to get Hervey Bay RSL's $5 million renovations absolutely perfect, PBS Building project manager Brad Ryan is focusing on the little things.

"We're not allowed for anything like a nail or screw to be more than 5mm from the ground because it's classified as a trip hazard, so everything has to be taped down," Mr Ryan said.

"Each space we're working in has to be dust-proof because the club could be inspected at any time."

The PBS team has rescheduled its routine to ensure the club continues to trade while the refurbishment takes place.

Gathering on-site in the pre-dawn hours, the contractors finish all disruptive indoor works by 9.30am to make sure customers aren't affected.

Mr Ryan said the RSL's bistro, kitchen, bar, Anzac Lounge, bottle shop and foyer were all being renovated.

He said works were being done in stages to help minimise disruptions, with the Anzac Lounge expected to be open by mid-year. Other work is to be completed by December 17.
