Falcon Bay Holdings, as the long term owner of a large commercial property located in
Welshpool, WA decided in 2016 that a total refurbishment and upgrade of the site was
needed to ensure the continued desirability of the property as a quality leasehold facility.

In particular, Falcon Bay was conscious of the need to ensure that the upgrade of the
property would allow all current market needs and expectations to be met and to this end
chose to appoint Commercial Design Management to undertake an all-encompassing reevaluation and re-design of the total site.

This design work was completed in an expeditious and most professional way with the final
design output meeting and exceeding all Falcon Bay expectations. Apart from the revised
design, a full scope of works and cost estimate was also developed which provided Falcon
Bay with the confidence needed to progress the project to the execution stage.

Falcon Bay then took the further decision to also appoint Commercial Design Management
as Project Manager for the project following which a Construction Contract was awarded for
works to commence with the complete upgrade and refurbishment of the site being
completed by the end of 2017.

Commercial Design Management’s expertise and hands-on involvement was a key factor in
ensuring that all project activities were planned and executed in a controlled manner such
that the project program was maintained with all works being completed to a very high

At all times, Commercial Design Management operated as an integrated team which allowed
any unplanned or unexpected scope changes to be dealt with expeditiously and also
resulted in an overall project budget that was delivered with only very minimal variation to
the expenditure as originally planned.

Falcon Bay Holdings has found the experience in working with Commercial Design
Management to be extremely productive, professional and pleasurable and the success of
his project can be clearly measured by the short duration between completion and the
property then being leased under long term arrangements.

We have no hesitation in recommending Commercial Design Management to any
prospective client.
Sincerely yours,

Falcon Bay Holdings Pty Ltd
