Testimonials

“You can be justifiably proud (as I am, although I have as yet to be privileged to view the end product) of what has been achieved through your participation. My thanks and gratitude to each one of you for having shown ownership throughout this project. From all accounts to date, you have set the new benchmark in the marketplace, and possibly also for Australia- which again demonstrates Deka’s commitment to holding 15 William Street to a Grade A+ standard, with several Premium features as a bonus.

By and large the feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive – “very impressive” was probably the most commonly used phrase, but a couple of more memorable ones were: “wow this is better than my gym” & “I’ve worked in lots of buildings but I’ve never seen anything like this before”. The volume and variety of bike racks, the size of the changing rooms and the number of lockers all drew positive comment, with towel service a particular highlight for many”.
