Before you getting started with Project Server 2016, you should be aware of the following points:

  • Project Server 2016 runs as a service application in SharePoint Server 2016.
  • A separate installation is no longer required as it was in previous versions of Project Server 2010 /2013.
  • The SharePoint Server 2016 MSI file will contain the installation files for Project Server 2016 as well.
  • Project Server 2016 is only available on SharePoint Server 2016 Enterprise.

So you only need to install SharePoint 2016 and configure Project Server Application service to can work with Project server 2016.

Regarding Resources,
