PFI experience


Through the practice's involvement with the Darent Valley Hospital PFI project, Paulley Architects have gained a full understanding of the complex process of the Private Finance Initiative from both the provider's and purchaser's perspectives.

The 400-bed Darent Valley Hospital, completed and opened in September 2000, was the first major healthcare project to reach Financial Close in July 1997. Paulley Architects have been involved as architect, lead consultant, master planner and health planner since competitive bidding stage in 1996. The practice has worked with contractors, healthcare trusts, legal and financial advisers to see the whole PFI procurement process through to the resultant successful building. We are now keen observers of the facility management process in action.

Paulley Architects can bring valuable experience and feedback to any team embarking upon a PFI process, whether it be for client advisory services or full design duties for a contracting consortium.
