ACEC’s Just-Released P3 Book Dives Deeper into Growing Market Segment

The just-released third edition of Public-Private Partnerships and Design-Build: Opportunities and Risks for Consulting Engineers presents new industry information and experience on P3 and DB approaches, and offers timely recommendations about the rewards, challenges, and risk exposures for consulting engineers in today’s still evolving?P3 and DB project work environment.

The Third Edition, in particular, examines the industry’s concerns about risk allocation and professional liability, and lays out a path of change forward that addresses those concerns and offers guidance on correcting their negative consequences–especially those that derive from aggressive, imbalanced, or imprudent procurement and contractual practices of upstream project participants.

Additions to the Third Edition include:

  • Proposed guidelines to best practices and other initiatives to bring about the recommended changes to improve the roles and alleviate the risk concerns of consulting engineers in P3s and DB.
  • Expanded examination of the various issues, challenges, and considerations relevant to a consulting engineer’s evaluation of whether, and under what terms and circumstances, to participate in P3 and DB projects.
