How can projects and innovations be effected that are necessary but difficult to finance? HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions finds the answers. Working with us our clients realize infrastructural projects for which we arrange everything from financing to planning and construction to operation from a single source—no matter whether the project in hand is a new school or administration building, a tunnel, a highway, or an innovative energy project. The added value for the client is obvious. First and foremost, it is often only through public-private partnership (PPP) that many solutions become financially feasible—and completion is faster as well.
In the long term too, PPP projects have proven to be economical, efficient and sustainable. This is due to the fact that on PPP projects, one entity is responsible for all services from financing to operation. This individual also manages the project after implementation and therefore also considers the entire life-cycle of a building as early as the start phase. This means that, right from the start, all parameters are put in place to ensure economical and sustainable use—often over decades.
HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions has been implementing projects of this kind since the 1990s. We find intelligent and innovative solutions. We make them plannable and calculable for our clients. At the same time, you can rely on the know-how of an internationally leading construction service provider. Undertaking projects with HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions therefore means greater security, fewer risks and more experience in implementing innovations.
Successful results in public buildings: With HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions it isn’t only in schools that such results can be achieved. Whenever it’s a question of extending, converting or constructing public buildings, HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions offers the perfect solutions because they allow significant efficiency gains to be achieved during every phase of the project. Even if budgets are tight, urgently needed measures can be financed, and implemented to a high standard with long-term cost-effectiveness.
HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions offers the state, cities and communities an all-round service: We finance, plan, construct, refurbish and provide facility management for public buildings. At present these include educational facilities such as schools, as well as public administration buildings such as town halls and civic centers, or security facilities such as police buildings or barracks.
The hallmarks of these projects are shorter planning and realization phases, and life-cycle costs that are optimized over the long term. This is made possible thanks to integrated planning from the outset which also takes into account the operation of the building throughout its entire life-cycle. Thus the follow-on costs for maintenance and upkeep can already be minimized from the start. In this way, the private financing of public buildings under the guidance of HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions becomes a model for success. In some cases, we operate projects for a period ranging from 15 to 30 years. Our portfolio in this area is highly diverse, and our experience with PPP is as long-standing as this business model itself. We were one of the first to successfully implement PPP projects with our partners—always with the aim of implementing a customized, client-oriented solution. Satisfied clients, building owners and users over many years are the proof that this business model works.
It’s great when traffic doesn’t involve stress for motorists—when there is no investment backlog—when public coffers aren’t in a state of chaos. In other words, when everything is running on a safe, well-organized track. The construction of roads, bridges and tunnels no longer has to be a massive feat of strength because HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions makes it easier for planners, operators and users to reach their destination smoothly.
HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions is currently undertaking road projects in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Greece, Chile, Canada and the USA.
What all projects have in common is that they secure economic advantages and greater efficiency over the long term. They moreover create excellent conditions for the lastingly high quality of the projects, and thus also for the satisfaction of the users. This is because not only are there fewer traffic hold-ups but, thanks to quality standards precisely defined in the concession tenders, there is also a uniformly high standard of operation.
All life-cycle costs—including maintenance and servicing—are already considered in the planning phase, and this farsightedness results in an optimization of the overall costs.
The future needs suggestions, new ideas and stimuli, as well as the strength and scope to implement those ideas. HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions is continuously on the hunt for new business areas. To identify potential “Infrastructure Ventures” we examine and undertake activities in innovative areas such as the development of renewable energies. This is an area which we have not only identified as promising, but in which we are already implementing projects.
Our involvement in this area takes in two geothermal power plants and offshore activities, as well as the development of pumped storage power plants, where wind and solar power can be stored. Such plants ensure a reliable flow of energy around the clock, and a stable electricity grid.
With the help of HOCHTIEF, innovative projects of this kind have the best chance of success because we possess not only the in-depth experience of an international service provider, but have also been active in the area of energy management for years. We provide financing, planning, construction and long-term operation from a single source, and involve our clients early on in the planning and development processes, so that we can jointly exploit significant efficiency and quality advantages. The bundled engineering knowledge and know-how transfer within the company make it possible to realize demanding and innovative projects rapidly and securely. This is what turns future visions into reality.
