Ensuring long-term value
Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) are a performance-based approach for procuring public infrastructure where the private sector assumes a major share of the responsibility in terms of risk and financing for project delivery, from design and structural planning to long-term maintenance. This fast-growing business model includes traditional infrastructure and projects such as La Maison Symphonique, the Montreal concert hall we designed and opened in 2011.
key role of the architect
We work with provincial, municipal and institutional clients on both the compliance framework as well as on the development side. For Women’s College Hospital in Toronto, we developed the design elements for a new hospital that were essential to meet client and user group needs.
In collaboration with the consortia that construct and operate P3 facilities, we ensure value for investment by developing and implementing designs that are intrinsically economic from an operational perspective. La Maison Symphonique and Bridgepoint Healthcare are examples of our involvement in this aspect of the P3 process.
