A new approach for Goodstart

Having appointed Broadspectrum to deliver nationwide Facilities Management services, early childhood education provider Goodstart reached out to APP to deliver their capital works program as part of a significant national operational upgrade of their asset portfolio. 

Taking an Innovative approach to design and procurement

APP is defining and driving the transition from a project-by-project delivery to a program management service using a seamless APP/Goodstart delivery team. We’re combining specialist, front-end project management with top-end national landscape and fit-out constructors to provide Goodstart with a genuine single line of responsibility across the country.

The team undertakes design and delivery services, business case preparation, program planning, cost management, engaging project teams, design management, contract administration, site supervision and handover.

Integrating our total delivery team within the client’s organisation

Given the national scope and complexity of the project, APP established a Program Management Office within the client’s office to establish a strong rapport across the project team. This approach has delivered greater transparency, increased communication and reduced delivery risk.

As a result, improvements in efficiency have been achieved through the development of standard processes and procedures, economies of scale introduced and best-practice commercial rigour instilled into the tender evaluation process.
