Spotless wins 25-year NZ Schools Public Private Partnership

Spotless is delighted to announce it will play a key role on a 25-year project to design, construct and maintain five new schools across New Zealand.

The integrated facilities services provider is part of the ShapEd consortium selected to deliver the third New Zealand Schools PPP initiative. Other members include CPB Contractors, Southbase Construction, Pacific Partnerships and architects ASC.

Spotless will deliver facilities management services for the schools, including asset management, grounds maintenance, pest control, cleaning, security, and utilities and waste management.

The initiative incorporates the design, construction and maintenance of three new primary schools in the North Island and the relocation of two high schools in the South Island, catering for a total of almost 4000 students. The New Zealand Ministry of Education is also looking to add a number of additional schools to the deal during this stage.

The project’s construction phase is scheduled to start in the coming months, with the schools set to open in 2019. It is anticipated by the Ministry to be worth more than NZ$200 million.

The contract has reaffirmed Spotless’ position as an industry leader for social infrastructure PPPs across Australia and New Zealand, with 13 projects operational and three contracts currently mobilising.

“Spotless thoroughly understands this model and we believe there will be opportunities to deliver similar services to other schools in the coming years,” said Spotless Group CEO, Martin Sheppard.

“Spotless has an unmatched capability to manage large-scale and long-term integrated services for PPP contracts across a range of sectors.”
