How To Unlock Your Development Site's Potential


Property development is a high stakes business, with a lot on the line when things go pear shaped. It’s important and somewhat comforting to know you have the right partners by your side advising, guiding and supporting you in unlocking your sites’ full potential.

A good development manager and project manager can alleviate pressure and put your mind at ease. But a great one can do this while maximising your profit margins and simultaneously reducing your expenses and exposure to risk.

But who do you trust?

The growing team of Avenor executives have years of experience working across a portfolio of institutional-grade projects across all asset classes, Australia wide.

With experience spanning apartment towers, hospitals, retail, industrial, heritage buildings and a string of state-of-the-art premium commercial office assets, to name a few, their expertise covers the entire development process.

Avenor director Peter Clemesha says his team has been carefully selected to ensure their experience covers all aspects of development services.

“Our development executives have vast experience across everything; from development assessments, highest and best use studies, feasibility studies, site acquisitions, design management, delivery management, sales and leasing campaigns,” Clemesha said.

“They can even advise on capital structuring and facilitate introduction with joint venture partners and capital funding.

“Once we’ve guided our clients through all the planning stages, that’s when the real fun starts.

“Our clients and partners rely on us to deliver on the project’s vision in accordance with the mind field of market and regulatory requirements.

“There’s a myriad of traps and potholes along the development journey that we de-risk, while ensuring the projects are delivered on time and on budget, to deliver feasibility returns.

“Our development and project managers start from the beginning with design management, statutory approvals, project briefs, sustainability integration, whilst regularly reporting on costs, risk management, progress timelines and potential value engineering, right through to completion and handover management. ”

The suite of projects Avenor has helped deliver is testament to their experience.

“We’ve worked on office buildings in North Sydney worth over $400 million, and secured the purchase of and managed planning approvals for high rise medium density apartments,” Clemesha said.

“We’ve also established the delivery process of the SRACC hospital in Brisbane, where we coordinated the master-planned precinct for student accommodation, a private hospital, retail and a retirement village, working with Australian Unity, to secure the Heston Quarter Health Precinct.

“Our clients include local and off-shore developers, such as Longbow Enterprises and Oxley Holdings, institutional investors, banks, including Macquarie Bank… the whole gambit,” Clemesha said.

“We’re also working with Atlassian, ALE Property Group, Transgrid and Penrith Council, to name a few. Our teams are tailored for each project to ensure they leverage our client’s internal resources and plugging the holes where they require external resourcing.”
