My Place Property Maintenance 

My Place Property Maintenance

My Place Property Maintenance started as a pilot program in the Upper Hunter in March 2020 and has since expanded with the addition of a maintenance facility in Beresfield NSW. From this facility, a team of skilled tradespeople are servicing the maintenance needs of our tenants across the Hunter and Central Coast.

My Place Property Maintenance (MPPM) commenced as a pilot program in the Upper Hunter in March 2020 with exceptional results.

Through MPPM, Compass internalises its own maintenance service by creating a facility maintenance operation and engaging an internal trade-based workforce.

Since the initial pilot, MPPM has expanded with the opening of a new property maintenance facility in Beresfield which will ultimately create 40 permanent Compass Housing jobs for administration staff, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and cleaners.

Staff at the facility service and maintain 2,600 social, affordable and disability housing homes that Compass manages in the Hunter and on the Central Coast. It is also be the headquarters for staff who will be employed to service another 1,800 homes in Cessnock and Taree for which Compass will take over responsibility for maintaining.

MPPM significantly changes Compass’s approach to the way it delivers maintenance by utilising the existing annual maintenance budget that is used for reactive, cyclical and vacant maintenance. The efficiencies of MPPM are creating the opportunity to direct a larger proportion of the maintenance expenditure towards planned upgrades to extend the life of Compass assets.

MPPM aligns with Compass’s strategic objectives and sustainable development goals, encompassing both social and environmental outcomes. It will reduce waste to landfill helping Compass achieve its 2030 carbon neutral objectives.

It will see the employment of apprentices from our client population with a focus on engaging Indigenous youth.
