Basso Project Management provided Tenancy Coordination Services and Leasing Advice.

“This was a very challenging site with tight confines, built boundary to boundary. Being adjacent to the local school and directly opposite residential properties meant limited access and restricted site working hours. Managing an interstate project is never easy, but by developing a strong ongoing relationship with Australand we were able to transcend geography and produce a much anticipated project we’re all immensely proud of.” Elia Basso, Director, Basso Project Management
