Western Sydney University (WSU), Campus Re-Developments

UWS westmead

Trio Property has managed the planning, selection of development partners, project delivery and sales/leasing phases of multiple projects for Western Sydney University (WSU). Common to all projects has been Trio Property’s ability to clearly define objectives and outputs at the outset of the project, drive the negotiations with potential development partners, appoint and co-ordinate technical teams and contractors with a well-defined scope of services, manage a clear and strict program, and manage consultant and contractor budgets.

Trio Property has been instrumental in the drafting of Expressions of Interest (EOI) and Request for Proposals (RFP) documents to source suitable development partners for the University, negotiate terms and execute project documents. Trio Property has been responsible for the negotiation of the transaction structure, and preparation of related project documents including a Project Delivery Agreement, Development Management Agreement, Co-owners Agreement, Ground Lease, project consultant briefs, project feasibility and overall project business case preparation for approval of the University Board of Trustees

Trio Property prepared an independent Request For Proposals (RFP) for a site in the lower Hunter Valley. The client sought an RFP for a development partner to join them in the delivery of approx 2,000+ residential allotments as well as over 200ha of industrial and business zoned lands.

Within 9 days, Trio Property was able to prepare the RFP documents in consultation with the client, seek expressions of interest from prequalified Tier 1 and Tier 2 developers, assist in the construction (and eventual operation) of a virtual data room, provide guidance and assistance in the finalisation of the due diligence documents made available with the data room, and coordinated meetings with each tenderer.

Trio Property handled all data room Q&A matters and assisted the client in the final selection of the development partner, as well as the negotiation and preparation of a Project Delivery Agreement (PDA) between the two parties.

Trio Property has also been assisting Flow Systems in the finalisation of a planning proposal for the site, currently in the latter stages of the Gateway Process. Trio Property assisted in the management of documenting a new vision for the site, liaison with two Council’s, local and state authorities, as well as other local stakeholders such as South Maitland Rail.
