Port Melbourne – Lorimer Place


Lorimer Place is an industrial warehouse and office development in Port Melbourne.

Lorimer Place comprises five buildings including a total of 21 individual tenancies ranging from 150 square metres to more than 400 square metres.

Early excavation work revealed the site was severely contaminated.



Basso Project Management sought to compact the contaminated soil to avoid costly removal and disposal, and any subsequent project delays.

“As the cost of removing and disposing of the contaminated soil was astronomical, we worked hand in hand with the builders and engineers to arrive at a far more cost effective solution.” Elia Basso, Director, Basso Project Management
