On 27 February 2020, the Queensland Government announced the Cooler Cleaner Schools Program (CCSP), which will provide a total funding package of more than $477 million over 4 years to air condition state schools and expand solar panel installations under the existing Advancing Clean Energy Schools (ACES) program.

Reaching completion in April 2022, this program has provided air conditioning to Queensland state school classrooms, libraries and staff rooms; delivering more comfortable teaching and learning environments for our students, teachers and school communities.

In total, under this program, approximately 650 state schools have benefited from air conditioning installations, making some 10,000 classrooms cooler and more comfortable.

Quadric was awarded the contract for the 22 schools in total accounting for over 1000 classrooms.  These works included the removal of existing mechanical units and installment and connection to new mechanical units, electrical upgrades, and associated builders works.  The works were conducted over a 24 month period and involved 4 Project Managers, 15 Site Managers, and 4 Contract Administrators.
