Protected: HCP Handback Services

HCP provides solutions and services to assist both our private and public sector partners to create, manage and deliver value through the intelligent management of infrastructure and related corporate assets.

We help decision makers with the management expertise, information, guidance and strategy required to deliver value from investments in PPP and other property portfolios.

As PFI projects are nearing ‘handback’ HCP has formed a Handback Team drawing on the knowledge and expertise of existing internal Strategic Asset Management, Commercial, Project Management and Technical Services teams. With the vast knowledge and experience of these teams, HCP is ideally placed to support private and public sector clients through the handback process. Early identification of the process for handback is likely to result in tangible financial benefits, providing the advantage of longer lead times for procurement.

“The Authority has worked with HCP on our project since 2014, the difference they have made is significant.  We now have a partnership working approach that is benefitting all parties, major issues are being resolved and there are clear communication lines.”

 Audra Ross, Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council – Contracts and PFI Manager
