Public Private Partnerships

The Billion Dollar Question…to P3 or Not to P3

Royal Columbian Hospital is undergoing 3-phase $1.35 billion redevelopment, the largest government funded health care capital project in the province’s history. Phase 1 was approved and procured as a Design Build and is now in construction. Phases 2 and 3 were approved as a DBFM-with-private-sector hospital-wide-maintenance. While the project was preparing for Phase 2/3 procurement the shift focused away from P3.

Our team undertook an extensive analysis of enhanced DB, enhanced DBF, and DBFM-with-public-sector-hospital-wide-maintenance while still keeping the procurement process and timelines on track. In this session, we share our lessons learned and the findings of an extensive procurement options analysis undertaken by Partnerships BC, Ernst and Young, and Fraser Health, as we answered our billion dollar question, to P3 or not to P3.
