At School Infrastructure NSW we are committed to using innovative, sustainable and efficient techniques to help us deliver our record breaking program of new and upgraded schools and meet the demand of growing school enrolments. We have several initiatives underway to drive a more sustainable and efficient delivery, including a major program to develop Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA).
DfMA is a design and construction process that combines the manufacture of building components, such as wall systems and facades, in a safe, clean and efficient factory environment, with on-site construction assembly.
DfMA has the potential to deliver significant safety and sustainability outcomes and drive productivity and quality efficiencies that can benefit Government, industry and communities.
In addition, DfMA will allow SINSW to build more quality schools in less time, providing greater delivery certainty, with less impact on the environment, local communities and existing school operations. This is good news for our industry and most importantly, for students.
Check out the first school NSW public school delivered using DfMA methods below, Jordan Springs Public School.
See how this innovative construction method has met the needs of the school community with a modern, flexible and built-for-purpose new school.
