Delivery Methodology

Negotiated Two Stage Guaranteed Maximum Price Fully Documented

The Junior School Redevelopment was a substantial project involving demolitions, refurbishment and elements of new build at the School’s Kew campus. The project required a planning permit amendment from the previously approved Masterplan, stakeholder consultation and coordination to achieve all approvals prior to construction commencing in December 2015.

The School elected to negotiate a contract sum with McCorkell Constructions whom constructed the adjoining McRae Building Project to a high degree of satisfaction. To achieve a value-for-money outcome for the School, Accuraco proposed and implemented a two stage Guaranteed Maximum Price procurement, where McCorkell submitted a 1st Round Tender based on Design Development Documentation and a 2nd Round Tender based on Contract Documentation.

Throughout the two-stage procurement, the McCorkell team worked with the School and consultants to maintain program, costs and quality expectations.
Practical Completion was achieved in Nov-16 with hard landscaping and play equipment completed by the end of Jan-17 in readiness for the 2017 School Year.
