Plenary Schools P3 and Service Works Global

The Queensland Schools Project is a public-private partnership between the Plenary Schools consortium and the Queensland Government’s Department of Education. The project will deliver 10 new schools in rapidly developing areas across southeast Queensland over a five year construction term. Plenary Schools will design, construct, commission, partially finance, maintain and provide facilities management services for the schools over a concession period of 30 years.

Completion of the schools were scheduled in stages between 2013 and 2018, lending a degree of complexity to the operational phase of the PPP. To help manage performance and quality standards across each of the 10 estates, Plenary Schools chose software from international CMMS and PPP operational performance software vendor, Service Works Global. Having had experience with QFM on previous projects, Plenary Schools was confident in the software’s ability to centrally manage and co-ordinate activities over a 200km area.

Rogier Waalder, Senior Asset Manager at Plenary Schools, comments: “QFM has helped manage the scale and expectations of this important project.”

The schools themselves are run by the State but should they need to log maintenance work or a service request, they can communicate it to Plenary directly through QFM. “Training the school staff on QFM is straightforward,” explains Waalder. “It takes less than a minute to log a job – a fraction of the time they spent using their previous system.”

With around 80,000 assets in the Queensland Schools contract alone, careful management can lead to greater efficiency for Plenary Schools but more importantly, can ensure a more functional learning environment for the 10,000 students and teachers.
