Accomplishing more, together
When public money is used, accountability and value for dollar are key. Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) are the best way the industry has discovered to properly spend large amounts of public money for public goods. The delivery model is like a design-build where the selected delivery team also helps solve the project’s financing and long term operation and maintenance needs. This model is frequently used to construct the biggest and most ambitious assets like billion-dollar hospitals, city-spanning transit systems, and region-powering hydro-electric dams.
It’s a massively powerful model that brings together financiers, architects, constructors, information technologists, operations, and management/maintenance teams into a single consortium charged with bringing the vision for a community asset to life.
Our PPP experience
We are one of North America’s most successful PPP deliverers. We have won more than 30 projects under this model and have been awarded the largest PPP projects in Canadian history. There is no delivery model with a higher degree of difficulty and companies that can navigate PPPs can navigate anything. Our achievements in this exclusive sphere speak to our reputation, corporate strength, quality of process, and ability to partner successfully.
We have learned a lot since our first PPP project and our belief in the power of this model pushed us to build out our ability to take a role in all the seats at the consortium table. In fact, our cradle-to-grave service offering was born out of a desire to give private owners the same power and unparalleled advantages that governments leverage with PPPs.
Also, developing cradle-to-grave and being able to lead every function in a standard consortium makes us a better team member. We understand everyone’s role, their value-offering, their needs, and even their risks. In this way, we can offer the owner more, we can offer our teammates more, and we can offer the project more.
