Client: Roads Australia
Project Completion: March 2019
When it comes to commercial property, change is inevitable. Leases will end, companies may grow and other issues, both external and internal, will rear their heads, forcing businesses to adapt and move forward. It goes without saying that stability and trustworthy relationships are paramount during these periods of change.
Having a property advisor who can deliver a relocation project and fitout after years of guiding its client through various changes is uncommon, but BRM Projects provided this exact service to its client, Roads Australia ,and the results speak for themselves.
Discover how over 10 years of advice and project delivery from the same commercial property provider helped Roads Australia through some challenging periods…
We love working on new projects with our existing clients. Optalert, is an exciting client, who has developed a technology that acts as an early warning drowsiness detection system. As its technology has grown and the company itself is increasingly becoming trusted by major global companies, its needs are changing, especially in the workplace itself and the property it occupies.
From our early property advisory work with the then new CEO Scott Coles in 2014, to the fitout of Optalert’s new offices that same year, BRM Projects has continued to act as Optalert’s trusted property partner throughout all of the its changes over the past few years.
Here is a preview of just some of the work BRM Projects has carried out for this fascinating company:
The world of commercial leasing can be tricky. Many businesses fall into the trap of becoming comfortable with their lease, not realising that it could pose serious limitations for them. Underestimating the importance of your commercial lease could be detrimental, while evaluating it with the help of a commercial property expert could actually add value to your business and set it up for a more stable future.
At BRM Projects, we see the following factors as central points of consideration when signing a new commercial lease or reviewing your current lease.
Client: Kennedy Partners
Location: Melbourne, CBD
This family law firm, based in Melbourne, had been practicing from the same premises for 25 years. When Kennedy Partners decided to employ the Property Strategy services of BRM Projects in late 2016, it was facing a ‘Stay or Go’ decision.
Over the past few decades, BRM Projects has secured its place as a leading provider of commercial property and workplace solutions. We know property, and we use this knowledge to provide our clients with an exceptional experience that goes beyond the signing of a lease.
We’ve worked with all kinds of organisations, from professional services to large scale Not For Profits and Government Authorities. Aside from our vast client base, it’s our unique skillset as consultants that sets us apart from other property providers.

Client: YSAS, Melbourne
This leading NFP agency enables young disadvantaged people to access the resources and support they require to lead a fulfilling life. In recent years, the YSAS team has increased in numbers and in 2018 the organisation called upon BRM to help it maximise its current workspace in order to fit more workers and create a healthier and more productive working environment.
Just because there’s an option in your lease to roll over, is it really the best option for your business?
The question “Should I stay or should I go?” is one that should be considered carefully, even as early as mid-way through your lease. Commercial leasing is undoubtedly a more lengthy and complicated process than residential leasing, therefore more time should be given to sorting out possibilities, from lease renewal, to searching for a new premises altogether.
