Australia Day Celebrations

One of Pickwick’s best known sites is Gasworks Plaza where it provides both cleaning and security services.  This commercial, residential and retail development at Newstead which is close to the heart of Brisbane is named after the tall iron structure of the No. 2 gas holder which was established in 1887 as Brisbane’s second gas works.  As part of this year’s Australia Day celebrations Pickwick worked alongside Pollen Communications one of Australia’s leading marketing events companies that staged a family day in the Gasometer which saw over 1,500 people visit.  Caeli Keating from Pollen commented “As always Pickwick staff were extremely professional and helpful during the event, it made working on the public holiday that much more enjoyable.”  She went on to say Pickwick “were extremely active in the Gasometer making sure that it always looked great.  We had a number of people approach us and comment on what a great job they were doing.”
