Our Approach: Think Strategically, Vet Thoroughly, Structure Creatively

InfraSolutions consulting services, offered in concert with our client’s financial and municipal advisors, span the life cycle of a project. We help our clients evaluate and develop alternative procurement and project delivery systems, as well as the best partnerships to bring the project to fruition.

After a thorough strategic evaluation of goals, constraints, resources and risk-bearing, we work with our clients to conduct a rigorous vetting of potential transaction models, often in partnership with a financial or municipal advisor. We make recommendations on transaction structure and partners accordingly, including a pathway to successful procurement. From there, we work with our client to assemble the necessary resources – financial, legal and technical – to move the deal forward.

More specifically, we focus on:

  • evaluating end goals and institutional constraints and resources,
  • assessing risk tolerance and capabilities,
  • conducting comprehensive due diligence,
  • exploring viable and rewarding structures to achieve those goals,
  • assembling a team of specialist advisors as necessary,
  • vetting potential transaction partners,
  • designing and implementing a custom procurement process, and
  • structuring project work-outs with attorneys, if and when necessary.
Our Services: Concept Development, Deal Structuring, Partner Vetting and Procurement Planning

Early Phase I: Pre-Procurement Concept Development & Strategic Project Planning
This phase begins with a detailed and comprehensive analysis of the nature and scope of the desired projects. The analysis includes consideration of the various project delivery options which may be available, including:
  • Traditional design-bid-build
  • Design-build
  • Construction-manager-at-risk
  • Build-operate-transfer (BOT)
  • Design-build-finance (DBF) (transfer upon completion)
  • Design-build-finance-operate-maintain (DBFOM) (transfer after period of private operation)
The more complex the project, and the further removed the project delivery and financing are from traditional norms, the more questions and considerations. Tapping expert strategic advice in the concept stages becomes even more important in this context.

Early Phase 2: Tailored Procurement Process and Procedures
Armed with valuable strategic and financial analysis early on, our clients call on us to design a customized procurement process in order to produce the optimal results identified in the pre-procurement planning. InfraSolutions balances multiple considerations when creating a tailored procurement process, addressing both legal requirements and business needs. An expertly tailored procurement process will incentivize thoughtful, aggressive and innovative responses that remove unnecessary barriers to bidding while protecting the owner’s interests in terms of risk, need and reputation.
