■ ST JOHN’S LUTHERAN CHURCH DEVELOPMENT
Client: St John’s Lutheran Church
Cost of Development: $6,000,000
Location: Aberdeen Street, Northbridge
Rowe Group was appointed by the St Johns Lutheran Church Perth to represent the Church as its Project Manager, from the initial design documentation phase through to the commissioning of the project. After successfully obtaining Development Approval the Church was able to secure a key anchor tenant for the development which meant expanding the current development to include additional floor space. Rowe Group took up the challenge and was able to work with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority in obtaining a new approval to encompass the expanded scope of development.
As the project grew Rowe Group was able to maintain and accommodate a builder on-site whilst further approvals and documentation were being developed. This meant that the development was able to continue uninterrupted. The methodology adopted by the Delivery team meant dividing the project into two phases which enabled the project to run seamlessly uninterrupted whilst the second phase of documentation and approvals was beginning to take shape.
The challenge of time was critical for the Church and the project’s viability was dependent on meeting leasing deadlines. Rowe Group has been able to overcome these challenges through weekly project planning and meetings to ensure the project team kept on track and timeframes for critical millstones where reached.
