ISS Facility Services has won a successful bid with financier Tetris Capital, DIF, ANZ Bank and Sarah Constructions (forming the TESA Education Consortium) for the SA Schools Public Private Partnership (PPP) Project.
ISS Facility Services will be providing hard and soft FM services. The net present cost of the total project over 30 years is $469.4m.
Continuing a trend that has seen vital Australian infrastructure delivered under PPP arrangements, South Australia will have two new P-12 schools opened in time for the 2022 academic year, with each accommodating as many as 1675 students, 100 special need students and 75 childcare placements.
One school is in the northern Adelaide suburb of Angle Vale and the other is in Aldinga in the south.
Through the project, the consortium will be engaged in funding, designing, constructing and maintaining the schools under a 30-year contract.
ISS will be responsible for building management services, caretaker services, cleaning services, grounds and garden maintenance, help desk services, pest control services, security services, utilities management services and waste management services.
ISS has a strong education portfolio in Australia, delivering facility services to 10 universities, more than 50 TAFEs and 870 public schools across Victoria and NSW for the State Department of Education.
ISS CEO, Scott Davies, comments: “ISS is delighted to win the SA Schools PPP project with our consortium partners. The highly collaborative relationships established with all stakeholders will enable us to leverage our specialist expertise for a successful and unified school design, construction and service delivery.
“ISS has a deep understanding of the needs of education customers, coupled with our ability to provide a wide range of hard and soft services will ensure the two new schools run smoothly and efficiently. We look forward to providing a safe, clean and well maintained school environment for all students and staff to enjoy”.
