BER School programme
Throughout the first quarter of the 2010 calendar year CJ Duncan successfully secured eight projects (approx. $16 million contract value) associated with the Federal Government’s Building Education Revolution (BER) scheme. CJ Duncan secured each project via a competitive tender process administered by Bovis Lend Lease (Bovis).
Bovis would go on to provide Design and Project Management input on each project, along with the Department of Education & Training (DET) and form CJ Duncan’s client on each project. CJ Duncan have formed a mutually supportive and successful working relationship with Bovis throughout the 12 months these projects have been underway. Across this suite of 8 projects CJ Duncan has worked closely with three Architects, three Multi-Disciplinary Engineering firms and two Geotechnical Engineers (not to mention dozens of specialist consultants, sub-contractors and suppliers). Given the haste at which the Federal Government pushed to have the BER projects commenced, this situation often saw minimal amounts of design and documentation being delivered for each project.
