Greater Orlando Area Continues to be Pumped Up About P3s
As demonstrated by the interest generated by a panel presentation I moderated last week for NAIOP’s Central Florida chapter, and the media response you can see at http://www.bizjournals.com/orlando/blog/2013/10/what-public-private-partnerships-could.html?page=all written by Abraham Aboraya, the Greater Orlando area continues to buzz about the prospects of public/private partnerships. The panel presentation featured Clint Glass, senior vice-president of Balfour Beatty Construction, David Hobbs, director of facilities planning and construction at Seminole State College and John Driscoll, president of Alter + Care, a division of The Alter Group.
Despite competing with Mayor Dyer’s State of the City Address, we drew a full room of attendees, generated great, thought-provoking questions, created a stir in the room after the presentation, and culminated with Mr. Aboraya’s excellent media coverage. We thank everyone involved for keeping the flame of P3s alight in Central Florida and look for great things there soon.
