Public Private Partnership

Public private partnership

GOLDBECK Public Partner GmbH develops and structures public-sector projects throughout the entire life cycle of a property. In this context we integrate the planning and construction services, the financing as well as all services from the utilisation phase into an energy-efficient and overall economic optimum and offer our customers all-in prices for a contract term of up to 30 years. Embedded in the GOLDBECK company group, we have the experience and potential at our disposal to design a project from a range of different options and service elements, which generates the best possible benefits for the customer. We take on the commercial responsibility from start to end of the property's life cycle. A defined range of services from construction and operation to risk diversification and remuneration are specified when the contract is concluded. This creates transparency for all those involved. GOLDBECK strongly supports the transparency initiative of the German construction industry.

PPP success model

That's precisely what's needed!

PPP or conventional implementation? It's not an easy decision. Plenty of questions remain. What advantages are offered by cooperation with a private partner. Primarily: which variant is more cost effective? And how do you find the right partner? It can help here to take a closer look at the features of a public private partnership. That's because they provide the framework for optimal implementation. The more consistently these core issues are observed by both partners, the more efficient a PPP is in comparison with a conventional approach.

Life cycle analysis 

The real cost effectiveness of a property can be seen in the long term. The utilisation and maintenance of a building account for up to 80 percent of the overall costs. Public Private Partnerships therefore consider the follow-on and operating costs at the building planning stage and develop solutions that are especially economical to operate.

Risk allocation

The risk is distributed fairly in a long-term partnership. The contract partners each bear the risk they can best manage and control and in this way both achieve optimum economic conditions.

Output specification

A functional service description stipulates target and framework conditions bindingly. It determines the type, scope and quality of the services allocated. The private partner is left enough scope to bring on board their own know-how.

Performance-driven remuneration

Remuneration based on quality, utilisation or availability provides an incentive for economically-optimised action. Bonus/penalty regulations enable especially targeted control in this regard. The public-sector client maintains control of the agreed performance level throughout the entire term of the contract.

Features of successful PPPs:

When evaluating PPP projects, the following factors have also proven critical in terms of economic efficiency and success:

  • Early integration of users and decision makers in the awarding process
  • Definition and weighting of goal-driven and project-specific evaluation criteria
  • Early and transparent communication of the undertaking

Advantages of the model

PPP advantages in detail:

  • Rapid implementation of projects
  • Increased efficiency through integration of private know-how
  • Cost-optimisation through evaluation of the life cycle and competitive conditions on the part of the bidder
  • Planning certainty for state budgets owing to all-in pricing of services
  • Cost transparency in the provision of public property throughout the entire life cycle
  • Decoupling of maintenance from the temporary state budgetary position
  • Long-term value retention of property at a level determined by the public authorities
