Infrastructure Development and Procurement Systems
Infinite-focus Group has the capability to identify plans and develop PPP schemes literally from ‘cradle to grave(decommissioning)’. We can assist sponsors to identify profitable economic units, militate against risks and seek protection in the concession agreements.
The Group’s management and specialist staffs have been at the forefront of Design & Build Contracts since their inception in UK and Ireland. Today, key management members have completed hundreds of kilometres of Major Inter Urban Motorway with great success.
- Early Contractor Involvement and Target Price Contracts
Together with our partners under our Joint Venture arrangements, we are poised to execute this particular type of contract arrangement in Ireland. The success of this arrangement can be gauged by the added value and speed of execution it brings to the procurement process.
- Public Private Partnership ( PPP ) Contracts
Together with our consortium partners, we intend to pursue this route of procurement in delivery of major infrastructure projects in West Africa. To date core members of our management team have completed construction on PPP schemes in Ireland and UK.
PPP schemes are means of meeting the needs associated with population growth, such as housing, water sanitation, schools, hospitals and transportation; industrial growth such as power, infrastructure and fixed investments; tourism and recreation such as airports, hotels and resorts; and environmental concerns such has waste incineration and recycle schemes. Provided sufficient demand exists for these projects, revenue streams can be identified and the commercial viability determined by promoters and lenders.
The two most fundamental constraints on PPP Projects are socio-economic and finance. Any sector that has the capacity to generate revenues through charging a tariff on throughput may be considered suitable for private finance strategy. Such projects include tolled highways, bridges and tunnels, water, gas or oil pipelines, hydroelectric facilities, power generation and more. However there are intrinsic factors that limit the involvement of Private sector in public projects. The major one is the control of risks, such as political risks, financial risk (interest rate fluctuations), operational risk, inflation etc.
