A new book, “Citizen’s Guide to P3 Projects: A Legal Primer for Public-Private Partnerships,” presents the benefits of public-private partnerships.
Intended to help architects, engineers, contractors, suppliers, elected public officials and ordinary citizens learn more about P3 projects. The guide was authored by Ernest C. Brown, Esq., PE. Brown has had an extensive career in construction law and civil engineering, and has advised on more than one billion dollars in U.S. P3 projects.
The book discusses the P3 process from project conception to construction. It outlines the benefits of such projects including “an opportunity for citizens to advocate for creative local projects,” according to a news release.
The book has new relevance due to changes to the industry brought on by COVID-19, the release says. “With the creation of safe distance facilities, homeless housing, and more, the need for collaborative partnerships and citizen-initiated projects has grown exponentially,” it says.
