Maintaining high levels of performance in a car requires regular fine tuning. Likewise in the construction industry, when each new project often has specific requirements, fine tuning can involve working closely with both the architect and the client to make sure everything runs smoothly.

On the Porsche Centre Brisbane project, construction company A Iacovella worked as construction manager, a role which facilitated greater interaction with the architect and the client, and resulted in the successful completion of the project, says company director Tony Iacovella.

"This was a prestige project that required special attention to surface detailing to properly reflect the marque of the car maker," he says.

Porsche's corporate imaging requirements meant that a significant proportion of the internal finishes and materials were sourced from Europe.

"Because so many materials were sourced from Europe we had to pay careful attention to the construction programming finding solutions that allowed work to continue despite the long lead times," says Iacovella.
