German PPP launch17th March 2006
Germany is preparing to launch one of its first health public private partnerships in Bremen, north-west Germany.
The E200m (£136m) project will be made up of a combination of refurbishment and new build. It should be tendered in April or May this year. The existing hospital site in Bremen will be reorganised, refurbished and integrated with the 22,000 sq m new hospital.
The procuring authority, Klinikum Bremen-Mitte, has already appointed CBP Projekt- management as technical consultants and project managers for the development. Legal advisers have been hired, and a tender for architects published in December.
Villingen-Schwenningen in the south-west of the country recently decided against using a partnership for a new 700-bed hospital, preferring conventional procurement. Health PPPs have been slower to catch on in Germany, instead education and transport have led the way.
