Project Advisory

From the first meeting, P+I works closely with the client to gain a comprehensive understanding of the needs and nature of the project. Our thorough and pragmatic research will then determine and inform our advice, as to whether a project is feasible and commercially viable.

Once determination of feasibility and funding structures is established, we can move the project forward. Depending on the nature of the project we can manage tender processes, engage consultants, manage design, raise finance, and document commercial and contractual structures. We typically remain involved with the project through construction and commissioning.

Advisory activities can include:

  • Feasibility and financial modelling;
  • Project structuring, including ownership options, and contractual and financial structures;
  • Complete analysis of the project risks and development of risk mitigation strategies;
  • Development of an implementation plan appropriate to the project;
  • Advice on project documentation to ensure this reflects the financial structure and is cost effective; and
  • Project due diligence.

We also undertake complex public sector advisory assignments, having previously worked on projects in defence, justice, health, primary industry and housing.

Financial Modelling

The cornerstone of sound feasibility advice is an accurate financial model, tailored to the specific project. The P+I modelling philosophy combines meticulous technical structure with client-friendly presentation.

Project feasibility and fundraising require a comprehensive and sophisticated financial model, incorporating a range of project and economic assumptions, from which viability and bankability can be established.

P+I financial models include the funding structure, drawdown and repayment schedules, and calculate debt service capacity.

The models test the robustness of the project to changes in key variables and parameters, such as the cost of finance, construction costs and programmatic delay.
