Project Title: P3 Performance for Higher Education

The research will compare options for alternative finance and procurement project delivery approaches for institutions that face similar circumstances. Specifically, dense urban setting, growth pressures and some increasing uncertainty in funding. The goal is to develop a taxonomy of alternative finance and procurement options, paired with examples and some reflections on how these have performed within the context of urban higher-learning institutions.
