School Infrastructure NSW
A record school building program will provide over 3,000 new or refurbished teaching and learning spaces across NSW. The focus will be on meeting a surge in enrolment demand with innovative, future-focused educational infrastructure, giving teachers and students every chance to succeed. This $4.2 billion investment, over four years, has been announced by the NSW Government as a cornerstone of the 2017-18 Budget.
There is an opportunity for a private partnership to deliver educational infrastructure for these state run and funded schools, as part of this program with the objective to:
•Accelerate school delivery to keep pace with projected public student growth.
•Minimise the costs and improve value for money for the State in delivering, providing and maintaining educational facilities and related services.
•Leverage existing market interest in partnerships with the State.
The highrise Arthur Phillip High School and Parramatta Primary School are being redeveloped to meet growth in secondary student populations in and around Parramatta. The project will construct two new schools centrally located in the heart of the Parramatta CBD and showcase for the delivery of multi-storey education facilities in response to metropolitan Sydney’s increasing residential density.
There will also be a new Inner Sydney School on the Cleveland Street school site to be redeveloped to create a new future focused high-rise school in a mix of new and refurbished buildings.
This project is currently in design and anticipated to proceed to construction tender in early 2018. The new facilities will incorporate future-focused, flexible teaching spaces with adaptable/moveable furniture and room configurations. The learning spaces will be technology-rich to serve multiple learning contexts from large class groups to small clusters, providing better opportunities for collaboration and personalised learning.
The $4.2 billion program also includes:
•New or major upgrades of high schools at Picton, Sydney Olympic Park, Alexandria Park, Queanbeyan, Oran Park and Canley Vale.
•New or major rebuilds of primary schools, including Kent Rd, Eastwood, Schofields, Riverbank, The Ponds, Greystanes, Marsden Rd and Liverpool.
