Summary
  • One thing that mature, developing, or undeveloped nations have in common in today's global economy is the necessity to construct, repair, refurbish, and modernize their infrastructure. More and more governments are turning to the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) process to accomplish this expensive and enormously challenging task - allowing private developers to design, finance, construct, and operate revenue-producing public projects, and then turn them over to the community at the end of an agreed payback period
  • The first book to explore this innovative approach to privatization, Build, Operate, Transfer covers the creation of BOT projects from the ground up. Using a real-world, case-oriented approach, it provides a comprehensive examination of the engineering, construction, and financial skills required to bring BOT ventures from the planning stage to design, construction, and operation. From the Channel Tunnel to the Dulles Greenway, the book examines both successful projects and troubled ones, extracting key information on what sets them apart - including such crucial factors as the importance of public support and government control in ensuring a positive outcome. You will also find specific coverage of construction techniques and procedures, plus financial comparisons, demographics, and other statistical data
