PROJECT SUMMARY

This sophisticated property in Newcastle’s Honeysuckle locale went to market in 2017 with all apartments selling off the plan in only five days. The JG Vertical team were called in at the final stage of the build. Working on several building assignments, our vertical access team, reduced the expensive cost of scaffolding three separate seven-storey buildings. Our solution provided a cost effective and quality outcome for developer and builder.
