Coming off the back of a number of notable recent projects, such as the Collins House in Melbourne and 130 Elizabeth Street in Sydney, Bates Smart has undergone an unprecedented round of promotions.
“Our recent promotions highlight the range of skills that have contributed to our continuing strength in the residential, commercial and hospitality sectors,” says Bates Smart managing director Simon Swaney.
These appointments boost Bates Smart’s cross-sector approach across Australia, and the firm hopes this will in turn lead to new opportunities.
