PPP Advisory

Attica Schools Palatzian

Whatever your view of the physical or commercial landscapes, the main sources of investment to enable development or change of either are Public Private Partnership (PPP) derivatives. They may well be the established routes to procuring public sector projects, but, in the challenging economic climate of the 21st century, innovative funding pathways are key.

Success requires a complexity of skills and a detailed working knowledge of practice and procedure that McBains can readily provide. In effect, it means we can look over the horizon and assess and advise on not just the likely project outcome, but the funding solution too. This can only be achieved with a truly interdisciplinary approach, involving holistic capability driving both strategy and delivery.
