BER Schools Program

The implementation by the Australian Government of the ‘Building the Education Revolution’ program in early 2009 provided a transformative opportunity for the company and the technology we utilise in the management of major projects. Significant school renewal projects valued at over $750m were secured extending across hundreds of sites, located from far north Queensland to southern Tasmania. The largest of these contracts was in South-West Sydney and covered 309 discrete projects at 203 schools. In response to this challenge, Hansen Yuncken developed a sophisticated tailor-made information management system which provided the real-time data needed to concurrently design and deliver on works of this scale and complexity, efficiently and within an extraordinarily tight program.
