How PPP works

Public Private Partnership (PPP) is taking hold in many parts of the world where the need for infrastructure outstrips available public sector finance. By investing in the companies set up to deliver these facilities, Skanska provides the finance and expertise for development, design, construction and operations.

PPPs bring together consortia including developers and investors, constructors and other service providers to finance, create and operate assets - such as highways, hospitals, schools and power plants - through long term contracts.

These development consortia and the Special Purpose Companies (SPCs) that they form, are designed to deliver services according to strong contractual agreements that are negotiated with their public sector clients. These contracts generally last for between 15 and 50 years
