ACCOUNTANCY firm RSM Bird Cameron will be the lead tenants of the $4.5 million David Street Chambers development in Albury.
RSM Bird Cameron will relocate from its existing headquarters in Stanley Street when the modern office development is completed on land previously occupied by Haberecht’s electrical store and Hanrahan’s drycleaning outlet.
The site was purchased recently by the Farrah Development Group headed up by Albury businessman Wayne Farrah.
RSM Bird Cameron director Michael O’Çallaghan said the firm had been looking for new premises for six to 12 months for its 25-strong workforce.
“The firm is growing,” he said.
“We are planning for the next 10 to 20 years of RSM in Albury.”
RSM Bird Cameron will lease the largest part of the complex with an additional 1000 square metres of office space, split into three tenancies, also available.
A development app-lication for the project will be lodged with Alb-ury Council next week and Modem Construction has been appointed the builders.
In 2008, RSM Bird Cameron and O’Callaghans Business Advisers merged with three partners, Mr O’Callaghan, Gerard O’Brien and Andrew Graham.
Mr Graham has transferred to Brisbane with the company and Jason Croker will become a partner from July 1.
Mr Croker worked for O’Çallaghans Business Advisers before the merger.
His external roles inc-lude Albury Northside chamber of commerce director and Albury-Wodonga Institute of Chartered Accountants Group committee member.
From a farming background, Mr Croker is a regular presenter at regional agribusiness events.
David Street Chambers will be situated bet-ween David and Macauley streets, just south of Soden’s Hotel, with acc-ompanying on-site car parking.
“Our structure enhances business efficiencies, reduces internal bureaucracy and underpins our client focused culture,” Mr Croker said.
“It also assists our clients in readily connecting to partners and senior advisors.”
