We strive to build innovative, modern and flexible school infrastructure where design, engineering, technology, culture and learning meet to deliver best-practice outcomes for NSW public school students.
Many schools are equipped with open space and other facilities which can be used by the local community without compromising the safety of schools and their operations.
Our partner agencies include Greater Sydney Commission, Urban Growth NSW, Landcom, the Land and Housing Corporation, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and local councils.
Our approach to industry engagement is to communicate effectively, to be open and responsive and to work in partnership to improve and streamline procurement opportunities.
Our delivery strategy provides details of our upcoming projects and clearly identifies the opportunities for industry to work with us so that together we can deliver improved outcomes for NSW students, families, communities, and businesses.
We also aim to partner with the private sector to integrate schools into new developments and provide our students with modern upgraded schools that respond to student trends in the most cost-effective way. This includes building schools in mixed-use developments, whilst ensuring that adequate play space is provided.
In addition, we’re making it easier for local trades to access a selection of maintenance jobs valued up to $50,000 at schools in their area with our Local Trades Scheme.
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 industry and students too.
