Building Management and Works
Building Management and Works provides a range of services to deliver the State Government's non-residential building program, using extensive in-house expertise in asset planning, project delivery and maintenance planning. Building Management and Works is committed to ensuring probity, value for money and effective risk management in all aspects of its operations.
Building Management and Works' activities include construction of Government buildings such as hospitals, schools and police stations, management of major State construction projects, management of maintenance contractors for Government buildings, management of the Government's office portfolio, setting capital works and construction policy, and administration of a range of heritage and built environment concerns.
Building Management and Works (BMW) have transitioned to a Whole of Government shared corporate services environment. As a result, certain BMW financial systems and processes have been replaced by Department of Finance systems.
In March 2010, Cabinet approved the objectives, principles and first steps in the implementation of the Master Planning approach to Government office accommodation. The first phase of master planning focussed on the consolidation in the CBD and decentralisation to a metropolitan activity centre.
On behalf of the Minister for Works, BMW administers a system of prequalification for building contractors in the building and construction industry known as the Builders' Prequalification Scheme for Works Contracts (BPS).
