Rork Projects has announced the launch of a new regional Victorian office, to service growing client demand and deliver on an increasing number of project opportunities in the regions.
The decision follows a major migration of the population to the regional areas, with the Australian Bureau of Statistics reporting that Greater Melbourne experienced its highest net loss of residents from 2019 to 2020.
Rork Projects Victorian General Manager Steve Raymond said that Rork Projects has a comprehensive track record delivering a multitude of construction, refurbishment and fit out projects across regional Victoria.
“Over the last 18 months we have delivered numerous projects across the regions – ranging from commercial fit out and refurbishment to new build,” Mr Raymond said.
“We are committed to providing our clients and contractors with same high-level service throughout regional Victoria, so it made sense for us to establish a permanent base closer to the delivery locations.
“We also know that we need someone we trust working on the ground in regional Victoria, which is why our new regional division will be led by our own Regional Construction Manager Scott Kennett.
“Scott has been a senior member of the Rork team for five years and this move ensures that Scott will be able to keep his finger on the pulse when it comes to overseeing our regional construction projects.”
Based in Bendigo, Scott Kennett said that his priority over the next six months is community and client engagement.
“We have extensive experience delivering projects for local governments across regional Victoria and the key to success has always been consultation and communication,” Mr Kennett said.
“I’m looking forward to working more closely with our local councils and contractors, and engaging with the regional communities to gain an intimate understanding of what is important.
“This approach is so important for us and our clients to ensure that what we are delivering mirrors what regional Victoria wants and needs, because we are here to stay.”
