Basso Project Management provided Leasing Advice and Tenancy Coordination of all 43 fitouts in record time.

Heavy rains threatened to delay the project by 14 weeks. But an accelerated building program ensured the original opening date was met.

“We had to work very hard to make sure every tenant was ready to trade when the centre opened. In the final two weeks, up to 400 workers were on site on any given day.” Elia Basso, Director, Basso Project Management
