Our Role /
NS Projects was engaged by Foundation Housing to manage the delivery of their flagship Affordable Housing development at 67-69 Bennett Street, Perth.
Working with Foundation Housing to utilize their NRAS entitlement, our role included developing a brief as well as procuring an architect (through a paid design competition) to manage the design on a very constricted site.
