The Code of Estimating Practice, seventh edition, published by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) in 2009 suggests that a consortium is:

The group of private sector participants who have come together for the purposes of tendering for a private finance initiative (PFI) contract.

The generic term is project company, which is established by the preferred tenderer and is the contracting party for the project.
