We contribute to Africa’s growth through our ongoing support in the development, establishment, management and finance across a broad spectrum of projects, and facilities, as well as operating capital assets.
Our services are provided through our core business streams:
We provide strategic advice to clients over the entire project lifecycle. Our strength lies in the ability to interpret and align our clients’ needs and objectives with the technical, commercial, financial, regulatory and human dynamics of their projects. Through appropriate project structuring, value engineering, risk-, change- and interface management, we turn project concepts into sustainable businesses.
We are experienced advisors in private-sector development, conventional government procurement, public-private partnerships and development facilitation. We actively lead transaction advisory teams comprising leading local and multinational engineering consultants, architects, facilities managers, financial advisors (mostly our in-house team – see “Project Finance & Modelling”), law firms and other specialists.
We are recognised by our clients for our skill and innovation in the development and implementation of transactions involving private finance and government. Our advisors are not only qualified in the built environment, but also have the necessary expertise to integrate the respective project workstreams.
