Book Description

Collaborative working and partnering between the public and private sectors has been fairly standard practice in some form or other for over 100 years, but it is only in recent years that it has become more prevalent. In the UK, it is little more than ten years since the most widely known Public Private Partnership (PPP), the Private Finance Initiative (PFI), was launched and yet it has already been described by some as 'the new economic paradigm.'

Public Private Partnerships in Construction is an authoritative and objective source of information on PPPs, including lessons to be learnt from the past decade, as well as coverage of their spread beyond the UK to governments in areas as diverse as Cambodia and California.

With its detailed presentation of current issues, illustrated with case studies, this book provides a valuable practical resource for a range of students and professionals.
