Govt signs first public private partnership school contract
As expected, the government signed its first school property public private partnership (PPP) contract with the Learning Infrastructure Partners (LIP) consortium - but has refused to reveal the value of the 25-year deal.
The LIP consortium will design, construct, finance and maintain Hobsonville Point Primary School and Hobsonville Point Secondary School for the next 25 years.
The primary school is scheduled to open in 2013 and the secondary school will open in early 2014.
ASC Architects and Perumal Pedavoli Architects did the design work, Hawkins Construction will build the schools and Programmed Facility Management will manage them.
