About HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions

HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions provides everything from a single source, from financing to planning, construction and operation of infrastructure projects—no matter whether the project involves a new school, an administration building, a tunnel or a highway. Based in Essen, Germany, this subsidiary of HOCHTIEF Solutions has business units and offices in Greece, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. To achieve success in large-scale infrastructure projects, HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions relies on contractual models which already include thinking and acting in a spirit of partnership in the early stages of projects. We create a suitable contractual structure for every individual project.

We not only practice partnership in a spirit of cooperation with our public sector clients but also with local small and medium-sized enterprises, whom we involve in all our PPP projects—as partner in the consortiums, as direct contractor or as subcontractor. HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions looks at projects from the perspective of their entire life cycle, shapes living space and consequently influences the environment for a long time. We face up to this responsibility and wish to actively intensify the sustainability of our projects.
