RCP was engaged by the Queensland Government to provide project management, contract administration and programming services for a total of 33 projects over 28 schools under the Building the Education Revolution (BER) program of works including libraries, halls, classrooms, science and language centres etc. The total construction cost of the projects managed by RCP was $58.75m with projects ranging from $230,000 to $4.2million.

In addition, RCP was also engaged by the Department of Public Works (DPW) to provide programming assistance to monitor the complete Qld State Schools for the Nation Building Program as part of the total $2.1b Building the Education Revolution component of the Federal Government’s Economic Stimulus Plan. RCP’s role was to develop the overall strategic programme and obtain progress information from the Department of Education, Training and The Arts who were responsible for the delivery of the stimulus plan. RCP provided detailed reports to DPW in the form of progress data in tabular and graphical formats to demonstrate funding commitment, expenditure, contract award and construction progress. Progress trends were factored into the DPW data to provide a view on whether Government imposed targets were likely to be met.
