ARCADIS Awarded First PPP Hospital Project in Germany

ARNHEM, The Netherlands, April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the international consulting, design, planning, engineering, and management services company today said that together with Stein Projektmanagement it has been awarded a contract for project management and technical consulting services for the new Hochtaunus hospital in Bad Homburg. The client for this project is the Hochtaunuskreis, a municipality near Frankfurt in Germany. This is the first Public Private Partnership project for a hospital in Germany.

Detailed examinations showed the existing hospital buildings to be inefficient and modernisation was too expensive. The Hochtaunuskreis therefore decided on a new construction of EUR 140 million, supported by the Hessian Ministry of Social Affairs as provider of subsidies. The state of Hesse adjusted the Hessian Hospital Laws to enable PPP projects in healthcare. By realising this as a PPP project, considerable cost advantages can be achieved.

The PPP approach includes the selection of a private sector party that will design and construct the buildings and operate these for 25 years. ARCADIS will coordinate the process up to construction completion and will also provide services for an additional 6 to 12 months after the beginning of the hospital's operations. ARCADIS' technical advisory services include the creation of all tender documents with performance specifications as well as the definition of quality standards and technical requirements. The aim is to offer private parties flexibility to achieve the desired efficiency gains while at the same time avoiding misinterpretation and allowing for comparability of the final offers. For ARCADIS and Stein Projektmanagement the contract has a fee volume of EUR 2.26 million for five years.

A Europe-wide tender for the project is scheduled for the summer of 2009 with the final award of the contract foreseen by the end of 2010, and operations starting in 2013. Hochtaunus hospital will be the first 'green building' hospital in Germany. Construction of the hospital will be certified as a green building pilot project by DGNB (German Association for Sustainable Building). According to project manager Jurgen Zimmermann, ARCADIS was selected for this project due to both its expert knowledge in the fields of healthcare and PPP projects and its impressive project management experience.
