Public Private Partnerships
GPA has engaged in PPP projects including an Ambulance Station in the Greenock Enterprize Zone in Glasgow, and the new BBC headquarters at Pacific Quay in Scotland. We advised on the site identification and acquisition, development agreements, sale and lease back, financing and tax leverage.
At GPA we have designed an innovative 1, 2 and 3 BR housing unit specifications using alternative technologies. The units have a low carbon footprint and come complete with solar power and durable plumbing. The units are available in a “kit” form which are easy to transport, and assembly requires minimal training and a low skill base.
The 1 BR unit measures 45 sqm and can be delivered for USD 6,000. The housing units are ideal for institutions or individuals who already own land in peri-urban locations.
Legal Management, Dispute Avoidance and Resolution
We have recognised the damage that can be caused by complex and incongruent legal documents on a development. We have extensive experience in dispute resolution and practice in International Adjudication and Arbitration which places us ideally to draft and edit legal documents with a keen focus on dispute avoidance.
Research & Case Studies
GPA undertakes primary research and case studies to influence policy making and for use as teaching materials in course work. Recent case studies include how Housing Finance, the largest mortgage provider in Kenya, raised debt and equity finance to grow its operations.
The case study is available at: Housing Finance Africa Case Study
