APG have been appointed as Project Manager for the planning, delivery and construction phases on a variety of upgrades to The Bletchington Primary School in regional NSW. The project is part of a multi-billion dollar program to upgrade schools across NSW. As Project Manager, we are authorised by the principal to provide knowledge, skill and experience to execute services and deliverables for all phases of the project.

The regional primary school forms part of the client’s strategic plan to deliver public school infrastructure in NSW. APG are working together with the client and stakeholders to create new learning environments to serve current and future students.

Project delivery phases include:

  • Contract documentation
  • Tender evaluate and award
  • Design completion
  • Construction administration
  • Commissioning and handover
  • Post completion / warranty

The project is being delivered under an ECI Delivery model and will be utilising the Modern Method of Construction (MMOC) DfMA to expediate the delivery.

The project scope includes new teaching spaces, refurbishment of existing support units, upgrading core facilities including halls, libraries and amenities, upgrading and repairing structures and refurbishing the existing buildings.

The project aims to increase permanent teaching spaces whilst bringing the school’s facilities up to the standard of contemporary Teaching, Safety and Education Facilities Standards and Guidelines requirements.

The primary school currently has a capacity of approximately 600 students, however the forecast demands the projected number of students consistently increasing to over 800.
