The federal report on public–private partnerships (PPPs) in the building sector, published in 2003, can be considered as the cornerstone for the realisation of PPP projects in Germany.

This lecture will draw a balance and take a look back on 10 years of daily dealings with PPP projects.

The presentation will:

  • Define PPP and look at the history of PPP and the different types of PPP contracts
  • Give an overview of the German PPP market
  • Highlight the experiences that have occurred in the context of procurement, financing and the realisation of PPP projects themselves
  • Share a short survey analyses PPP projects in the building construction and road sectors

Then, the speakers will summarise and evaluate the experiences in preparation and realisation and provide a closer look at the actual and future development of PPP in Germany with consideration of critical aspects and possible solutions.

The paper that forms the basis of this presentation won the Parkman Medal at the 2015 ICE Annual Award Ceremony. The medal is awarded for the best paper published by the Institution in the previous year on the practical aspects of the control or management, including project management, of the design and/or construction of a specific scheme.​ The paper is availale to delegates to read online.
