(This is a half-day workshop; 8:00am-12:00pm) P3- Public-Private Partnerships is gaining ground in the United States. P3 is a method of procuring public infrastructure where the private sector assumes a major share of the financing and construction. Design Build is a method for project delivery in which a design-build team works under a single contract to provide design and construction services. Public-private partnerships and Design Build both have the potential benefits as projects can be completed more quickly and sometimes at a lower cost. This course will focus on the benefits (and issues) of both Design –Build Projects, P3 Projects and P3-Design-Build Projects. We will focus on successful P3/Design Build projects and how they work.
