Abstract

BOT and PPP/PFI projects are increasingly gaining the trust of governments globally. Public sector has realized that only with the participation of private financing the required infrastructure can get constructed. Thus, the implementation of these projects represents both an opportunity and a challenge for both the public and the private sector. Particularly in relation to the Greek construction reality, there is very limited experience in these projects. However, there is the political will to promote such projects in the near future. The objective of this research is to explore the topic of core competencies that members of the construction industry need to possess in order to participate successfully in BOT and PPP/PFI projects. The research, will especially focus on Greek consultants and contractors and examine their awareness and understanding of the specific issues related with these projects. For this reason, a number of leading consultants and contractors were approached in order to investigate their intentions and expectations about these projects and also assess their degree of preparation in terms of core competencies required. The acquired data were used in assessing the current state of the Greek construction industry in relation to the implementation of BOT and PPP/PFI projects in the near future. Hopefully, this report could be supplemented by a similar one in the near future after the first series of such projects will have gone through and examine their degree of success or failure in relation to the current expectations and intentions of the Greek construction industry.
