Housing Stimulus Package
In response to the global financial crisis of 2008-2009, Australia put in place one of the largest fiscal policy packages in the developed world which included the Federal Government’s Housing Stimulus Package. CPS was appointed as design manager and project manager to provide programme and project management services of new residential dwellings for the aged and disadvantaged in the Southern Shire region in Sydney.
The scope of works largely focused on the refurbishment and upgrade of the existing housing stock to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act, Building Code of Australia and various Aging regulations. CPS controlled the development documentation and management of these projects by utilising a web based collaboration programme which successfully saw the completion of all undertakings.
By using a web based project management system, CPS was able to complete the projects on time and ahead of the industry. As a result of taking the lead in the delivery of completed projects, CPS along with Housing NSW helped the instrumental process and procedures which were then accepted by the project managers engaged as part of the housing stimulus package.
