German college PPP tendered

A district in North Rhine-Westphalia is looking to develop a new building for a vocational college under a PPP.

Rhein-Erft is seeking a private partner to design, build, finance, and maintain the building in Bergheim for the city’s vocational college (Berufskolleg Bergheim). The maintenance term is 25 years after construction. 

Under the plans, the college will move from three locations to two in the medium-term, and in the long-term to a single location in the urban area of Bergheim.

The new building, with an expected gross area of 5,500sq m, will include sports facilities and amenities. Applications are due by 24 October, with questions by 14 October, and a shortlist is expected at the end of November.

The project documents are available here.
