Some of the major asset enhancement initiatives the team has led and executed include the iconic Suntec City in Singapore, which was revitalised into a vibrant and exciting MICE and shopping destination, Century Link in Shanghai, China, where the team took only 18 months to enhance, fit out and soft-open the mall and Southgate Complex in Melbourne, Australia, which achieved a 99% occupancy rate in the commercial towers following a comprehensive refurbishment program and a renewed focus on customer experience.
