Prince George’s County School Board gains P3 approval

Delayed vote passes; path cleared for the USA’s debut schools bundle.

The Prince George’s County School board has approved the use of the P3 model to build six new schools in Maryland. A consortium consisting of Fengate, Gilbane, Stantec and Honeywell has been selected as the frontrunner for the $1.2bn bundle. The vote, which had been delayed by a week, passed 11-1. The pathfinder project aims to alleviate some of the $8.5bn backlog in school construction across the district.
