AUS$414m schools building programme is project managed using Asta Powerproject Enterprise

Hansen Yuncken, one of Australia’s largest privately owned construction companies, has been engaged as the Managing Contractor for the AUS$414 million dollar BER (Building the Education Revolution) programme in the South Western region of Sydney, New South Wales. Under BER, the government has committed to provide a new school library, multipurpose hall or classroom modernisation for every single primary school in Australia.

Solid Support Pty Ltd was appointed as programme management consultants to Hansen Yuncken and recommended that Asta Powerproject Enterprise be considered as part of the process to identify the most suitable project management software for this project.

Asta Powerproject Enterprise has been deployed at Hansen Yuncken’s head office and three satellite offices. It is managing project information spanning some 25,000 live tasks at any one time and was deployed over Citrix to provide web access for project management teams and site managers no matter whether they were at home, on site or at a Hansen Yuncken office. Up to 30 people use the system at any one time.

“Asta Powerproject Enterprise came deployed over Citrix giving us web-based access. I am able to bring it up on my computer and show the client or management the situation live…. The reports we can produce from the information gathered are brilliant and do exactly the job we need.” – Matt O’Grady, Program Manager, Hansen Yuncken.
