Project Financing

Project financing has assumed a leading role in the implementation of large public works.

The procedure for selecting the Borrower and negotiating the project, economic-financial and legal aspects with the Lender involves the need to manage complex relationships with public and private players who take part in the construction and management of the public work.

The success of project financing operations, therefore, requires not only the technical and entrepreneurial skills of public works’ engineers, constructors and project managers, but also specialist economic-financial and legal skills.

Thanks to its skills and experience acquired over the years:
  • in consultancy and economic-financial and legal assistance to groups of companies involved in the construction of large public works;
  • in consultancy and assistance to Public Administrations in drawing up feasibility studies, Catchment Area Plan and Water Basin Plan (economic-financial reports), or through its participation in proposal Assessment Commissions;
  • as professor of project financing at Scuola Superiore della Pubblica Amministrazione Locale del Veneto;
