Infrastructure Development

Skanska is one of the world's leading development companies with Public Private Partnerships in our home markets in the Americas and Europe.

Our mission is not only to build what communities need, but, more importantly, to improve peoples' every day lives.

The PPP concept

  • A procurement method to stretch public dollars with private investment to create or rebuild infrastructure
  • Long-term contractual partnership with government entities, private investors, construction firms, and asset and operations managers
  • Requires a long-term repayment stream
    • User fee (tolls)
    • Annual availability payment from the government client
  • Transfer of major projects risks from public to private sector
  • Asset reverts to public sector at end of concession at zero cost
    • Typical concession length – 25 – 50 years
