Course overview

There are many different types of P3 developments, but they often include major projects such as hospitals, schools, courts, social housing, and large infrastructure assets such as roads, bridges, etc. One of the challenges with properties developed through the P3 process is the valuation of the resulting asset, particularly as many of the properties are of a type that are not normally traded in the market. In this web class, experts will look at the different types of P3 arrangements; the way in which P3 projects are structured; the roles of the partners involved in the projects; risks and financial analysis; the applicability of international valuation standards; and the valuation methodology to apply to what are often very specialized properties. Participants will be provided with up to date information about P3 projects and how the often highly-specialized assets created can be valued.  

Who Should Attend

This is intended for assessors, appraisers and other professional real estate valuers, advocates, lawyers, and paralegals involved in disputes concerning the valuation of P3 developments or those who work with P3 properties.

Why Attend?

This class will be delivered using PowerPoint slides with discussions and activities integrated throughout to embed your learning. The class will end with an open Q&A session with your instructor.
