Norton Rose Fulbright advises on pathfinder Irish Primary Care PPP Project

Business June 1, 2016

  • First primary care PPP in Ireland

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has advised European Investment Bank, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ and Talanx as senior lenders in relation to the Irish Primary Care PPP Project. The project involves the financing, construction and operation of 14 primary care centres located throughout Ireland.

The hospitals will house non-acute services such as GP surgeries and dentists. The development will be delivered by a consortium made up of Balfour Beatty Investments, Prime plc and InfraRed, and will mark a step change in the way health services are delivered in Ireland.

Matthew Hardwick, partner, comments:

“It has been a delight working with the various stakeholders to deliver this exciting pathfinder project which will provide a template for future primary care infrastructure delivery in Ireland. There is clearly a desire within the Irish Government and the NDFA to deliver on an aggressive programme of infrastructure development. With this kind of backing, we see no reason why Ireland cannot take over from where the UK left off and be the hub for infrastructure development in Europe.”

The Norton Rose Fulbright team was led by partner Matthew Hardwick and included senior associate Bevan Peachey and associates, Marcella Stokell and Matt Hacking.
