  • Required a whole-team approach to maintain full oversight of all facets of the development.
  • Several complications arose during the supermarket development which resulted in lengthy negotiations with the tenant and contractor around pricing.
  • Highly sensitive issues around storm water drainage from the site required protracted negotiations.
