There are nearly 100 active PFI/PPP/NPD model projects operational in Scotland and more than 600 active in the United Kingdom. As the projects involve long-term contractual arrangements it is inevitable that issues will arise between the parties. The types of issues which can arise will be many and varied but include:
- Addressing the developing needs of the public sector through changes to the facilities both in terms of physical changes to the building and the scope of the facilities management services provided
- Addressing the possibility of one or more of the original parties in the project becoming insolvent or otherwise needing replaced
- Disputes over whether the project is delivering the required services to the public sector
Our team has significant experience in supporting and assisting public and private sector clients in relation to the many and varied issues which can arise in projects in which they have a role. Our role is to ensure that the process can be achieved as swiftly as possible and to achieve the best result possible.
