Manufacturing Partner

Following a competitive tender process The APP Group was appointed as the Manufacturing Partner for the Manufacturing for Schools program.

The APP Group will work with us across the process of delivering a school from the initial design and planning, through the purchasing of materials, to the manufacturing, transport and assembly of buildings on site.

The Manufacturing for Schools Program allows us to leverage economies of scale through the bulk purchase of standard buildings, while also providing greater certainty to local manufacturers through improved workflows.

This enables the department to deliver schools, on average, 20% cheaper and 30% faster when compared to traditional construction methods.
