ADF Single LEAP 1 Regional Queensland and New South Wales, Australia
A total of 1,395 on-base rooms were delivered at defence force bases at Holsworthy (Sydney, NSW), Gallipoli Barracks (Enoggera, Qld) and RAAF Base Amberley, (Qld). The project is fundamental to the ongoing recruitment and retention of high quality young people in the Australian Defence Forces.
The new accommodation offers independent living accommodation for Australian Defence Force personnel. It dramatically improved the living-in accommodation able to be provided to single servicemen and servicewomen on three strategic located bases.
With an increasing focus on PPPs as a procurement option for the Australian Department of Defence, this project was delivered ahead of schedule and on-budget by Plenary Living who will manage the facilities as the Project Co for the 30 year concession period.
In operation for over three years, Plenary Living surveys service personnel on its performance. During the most recent client satisfaction survey, Plenary Living received a 100% 'satisfaction' response with two-thirds of respondents nominating they were 'very satisfied'.
