Bounty Boulevard State School, North Lakes

Bounty Boulevard State School,
North Lakes

 

The Queensland Government acquired a 6.5ha plot of land in North Lakes, 25 km north of Brisbane, to develop a new P-7 State School to be rolled out over 3 phases.

 

North Lakes is a rapidly growing master planned community and the construction of this new school provides the growing community with the necessary school places and an enhanced level of amenity.

 

Using a fast-track design and construct procurement method, the first phase was completed in stages, under budget, and in time for the commencement of the school year in 2009.

 

With an initial enrolment of 280 students, the school’s master plan accommodates facilities for over 700 students and 80 staff members.

 

PDS took over the management of this project by undertaking to provide continuity of services by project personnel. Our role was to assist the Queensland Government, through DPW Project Services, with day-to-day project management services through completion, into project close-out and then ongoing asset management. Our responsibilities included intensive stakeholder liaison, contract administration, issues management, commissioning and staff training.
