Client Testimonial

‘Lowndes Jordan used RDW as project managers for our new fit out and relocation from ANZ Centre to PWC Tower. The project had many challenges which the team overcame with due care, process and professionalism. We were delighted with our choice of project managers. Their attention to detail was superb and we never doubted their ability to manage, control and motivate the design team and contractor. We are pleased to recommend the team at RDW for similar high quality and demanding projects.’
