Public-private partnerships aren’t just being used for transportation projects. On July 28, a Skanska team submitted our qualifications for the University of California, Merced’s 2020 project, which aims to double the campus’ size by 2020 through some 1.9 million square feet of construction spread among academic, housing, research and other building types. This is the largest social infrastructure P3 project in the U.S., with a client-estimated value of about $1.2 billion.
