Thanks to the collaborative efforts of Building and Asset Services (BAS) and the Department of Education, thousands of school children in 73 schools across Queensland have access to new and improved facilities
Give all our children a great start is a key priority of the Queensland Government’s Advancing Queensland’s Priorities and the Advancing Queensland Schools initiative is one of HPW’s important contributions to this goal.
Between March 2017 and April 2019, the program delivered over $200 million in capital infrastructure upgrades including 25 new sports halls and performing arts facilities built or upgraded by BAS. A further 36 capital renewal upgrades to various learning environments were also undertaken during this period.
Coordinated by BAS’ Capital Programs team, the works have been delivered through a collaborative, statewide effort by regional operational teams.
The client said collaboration was key to the program’s accelerated delivery.
“The investment in construction of new school halls, upgrading of existing school halls and acceleration of capital renewal projects has provided the schools and their communities with the facilities to achieve desired curriculum outcomes.”
