Bilfinger Berger awarded German schools PPP

The German construction giant will modernise and expand three existing schools and construct a new school center in Bavaria’s Hof district. The PPP is expected to cost €50m and will require Bilfinger to operate the schools for 21 years.

German-based construction company Bilfinger Berger has been awarded a contract to modernise four schools in Bavaria’s Hof district as a public-private partnership (PPP).

The PPP involves modernization and expansion of three existing schools and the construction of a new school center. Bilfinger will also operate the schools for 21 years.

The project is expected to cost €50 million. The financing does not require any equity contribution from Bilfinger.

Bilfinger already operates a number of social infrastructure projects in Germany. These include the Burg Prison, the first PPP for a penitentiary in Germany, which will go into operation this month, and a cancer therapy center in the city of Kiel.

Bilfinger is also active in other PPP markets, including the UK, Canada and Australia.
