Western Australia Schools PPP

Perth, Western Australia

The project is comprised of a WA Government contract for the finance, design, documentation, construction and 30-year maintenance life for four primary and four secondary schools across the Perth metropolitan area.

Lucid joined the consortium during the EOI stage, followed by a successful bid phase with a collaborative team that was ultimately awarded the government contract for delivery.

Life cycle utility modelling was undertaken to critically evaluate Whole of Life (WoL) sustainability initiatives which resulted in a total of 2,240 kW of solar PV (9000 panels) installed across the school sites to approach Net Zero GHG emissions and to well exceed equivalent 4-star Greenstar criteria.

The four primary schools (Woodland Grove, Baldivis Garden, Alkimos Beach and Carnaby Rise) were constructed simultaneously throughout 2016 and were opened on time for the 2017 school year. The first secondary school, Ellenbrook North has completed construction and is scheduled to open for the 2018 school year.
