NZ Schools PPP3

NZ Schools PPP3 Project will deliver five new public schools across New Zealand. The primary and secondary schools will be constructed under a Public Private Partnership, with design, construction, maintenance and financing to be provided by the private sector partner meeting comprehensive functional and operational performance standards.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged by Creative Learning, a consortium made up of John Laing Investments and Downer NZ, to deliver a technical due diligence report in support of their bid. The report is an essential independent review of the construction and facilities management solution, including the cost of delivering the services, and the potential impact of various delay and default scenarios.


Technical due diligence.

The outcome

The report was successfully delivered in parallel with the development of the consortium’s design and facilities management solution during the Request for Tender period. This involved close collaboration with the consortium service providers (construction, FM and financial), the project equity investors and supporting debt providers.
