Providing innovative procurement solutions for local government projects

We advised City of Casey on the procurement process of the Bunjil Place Project.

Bunjil Place is a $125 million civic and cultural precinct for the City of Casey, encompassing an 800-seat theatre and 200-seat studio, community plaza with function centre, as well as a gallery, library and café.

Maddocks advised the City of Casey on the procurement model, which included conducting an international design competition and preparing key contracts and project documentation.

The project was procured under a unique form of contract, a managing contractor agreement, which enabled the Council greater transparency – and therefore control – over the costs incurred by the sub-contractors. Maddocks specifically developed the contract for this project.

Maddocks has a longstanding working relationship with the City of Casey and this role showcased the firm’s expertise in advising local government on key state building projects, along with our expertise in providing innovative solutions to help Council deliver high-value assets successfully without the need to resort to private sector funding.

The Maddocks team on the project was led by partner Paul Woods, assisted by consultant Shane Ridley
