As a commercial tenant you will face plenty of change. some things, however, are worth keeping the same.
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.

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:
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.

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.

When BRM Projects began working with knp Solutions, a Melbourne-based accounting firm, it was settled into its 22 year old traditional office space with a location and building that was suited to both clients and staff.
It was an unexpected eviction notice mid-lease and additional partners that triggered the need for a change of location and company direction.....
