OCT 2017 E:News
OCTOBER E-NEWS An exciting month at BE Projects, with the completion 2 unique projects. The East Fremantle Residence made the most of the small block size, maximising the building footprint with high quality finishes and well designed spaces. The West Leederville Primary School project was a design and construct, the first of its kind for the client. After documentation was complete, we mobilised to site in and were able hand back the building in 6 months, ready for the students to use first week of this term.
