Testimonials

 

  • The GPT Group HSBC Centre 580 George Street 2015

     “From my observations as the Concierge in the lobby, the Christmas Tree and wreath were such a unique design that tenants and visitors could not help but stop to admire them. Some of the company departments had group photos in front of the tree.  Mums & Dads dropping off their children to the childcare made a mandatory fly by, and after Christmas when the tree was removed the children would always look at the area where it stood for a few weeks.”

  • City of Greater Dandenong 2014



    "The City of Greater Dandenong was seeking Christmas decorations to make a striking impact in our new central civic square, which attracts around 20,000 visitors per week.  Chas Clarkson was successful through a tender process, and recommended a 9 metre high led-lit Santa and Reindeer. The size, style and presence of the decoration provided a landmark attraction and great photo opportunities for residents and visitors to the centre, both day and night. Chas Clarkson staff were extremely professional through the whole process of liaison, installation, dismantle and storage. They provided peace of mind with their attention to detail, communication and customer service, all of which were well above my expectations."
