Rau to officially open Light Square redevelopment

South Australia’s Deputy Premier and Attorney-General John Rau will officially open Tindall Gask Bentley’s multi-million dollar Adelaide office at 76 Light Square on Friday September 7, 2012.

More than 100 guests are expected to attend the event held at the top level of the eight storey building, overlooking the Light Square precinct and the western suburbs. 

For the major proprietor of the development, TGB managing partner Morry Bailes, the cutting of the ribbon is a proud moment.

“I am thrilled to celebrate this achievement,” Mr Bailes said. “It has been four years in the making with plenty of challenges along the way, but we got the job done and produced a fantastic building for our clients, staff and the city of Adelaide.” 

The site was home to Tindall Gask Bentley from 1974 before the firm outgrew the premises, taking up temporary residence on Pirie Street while the new building was developed.

TGB has since become South Australia’s largest plantiff law firm and occupies six levels, another level is leased office space and the ground floor is set aside for retail.  

Local architect Paul Pruszinski was behind the environmentally friendly design and Tagara Builders was in charge of construction.

“Development in Adelaide and the local property market in general is the source of much debate but I am certainly positive about it,” Mr Bailes said.

“Working with companies like Pruszinski Architects and Tagara has proven that there are great local companies in this industry and Adelaide’s future is bright.”
