Public-Private Partnerships (P3)

Public-Private Partnerships involve the collaboration of public entities with the private sector

We’ve delivered over $4 billion in public-private partnership projects

Our team of vertically integrated development and building experts offers public clients innovative and flexible finance, construction, and long-term operations and maintenance solutions. 



Collaboration truly creates an integrated team of all entities involved from the owner down to the trade contractors. When this philosophy is implemented early and the integrated team institutes open, collaborative project-oriented goals, the result is a cost-effective and timely built facility that is of the highest quality standard.



With several alternative financial P3 structures available, we evaluate all options, including taxable and tax-exempt, to structure a customized solution that best suits our client’s desired outcome.


Operations & Maintenance

Operating and maintaining facilities over the long term, in first-class condition, starts at the earliest stages of project planning and design. Driven by asset preservation, Gilbane analyzes both short-term and long-term operating and capital improvements focused on extending the life of the assets.

“There are lots of ‘firsts’ in this project that I think the School District will be able to build on for years to come, and Gilbane has shown us the way.”
