Basso Project Management played a major role in providing all programming and coordination of temporary infrastructure for all regional venues as well as site management throughout events.

This included events at the Ballarat Minerdome, Bendigo Stadium, Wellsford Rifle Range, Geelong Arena, Lysterfield Park and Traralgon Sports Stadium.

“We were engaged to carry out these works at the eleventh hour after other project management firms refused to take them on at the last minute. We worked day and night to make everything happen like clockwork.” Elia Basso, Director, Basso Project Management
