Public Private Partnership

GL Hearn has the premier Public Private Partnership (PPP) planning advisory service in the UK.

We advise the public sector, private investors, special purchase vehicles, contractors and occupiers on all stages of PPP projects. We can provide an in-house planning manager role and traditional office based planning consultancy, or both, depending on the project requirements.

The service is led by Ben Stalham (Infrastructure Sector Lead and Public Private Partnership Sector Lead), and has the following track record summary:

  • Delivery of over £4bn of PPP, Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and Design & Build projects in the UK and Europe
  • Advising on over 600,000sqm (6,000,000sqft) of new build development at landmark sites in Central London, Cambridge and Glasgow.
  • Winner of ‘Top 10 Infrastructure Project in the World’ and ‘Best New Hospital in the World’ awards
  • Advisor on the most new-build NHS and private healthcare space in the UK
  • Advisor on over 150 new schools, libraries and council offices in the UK
  • Advisor on the largest new tri-service military base in the UK
  • Advisor on the only permanently approved helipad in Central London
  • Specialist in development involving Scheduled Ancient Monuments, Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas
  • Specialist in tall building development
  • Specialist in delivering long-term projects with complex phasing and inter-dependencies

GL Hearn is highly experienced at assisting the public sector to bring opportunities to market to generate private sector interest and advising the private sector to deliver complicated projects on programme and budget. We are also especially adept at assisting bid teams on PPP opportunities, where planning and real estate presents great opportunities and can be a bid differentiator.

If you have an existing or complex project that you wish to discuss, please contact Laura Meyer for projects with a capital value up to £50 million, or Ben Stalham, for all projects greater than £50 million.
