Approach to Project Assigments

PACON approaches each assignment by mobilizing international, regional and local professionals in a carefully structured team to respond to the Terms of Reference (Scope of Work) with the needed multi-disciplinary resources, rapid mobilization, local knowledge and timely report preparation.  Most important all our Associate Consultants are senior with 20 or more years of experience, which is necessary to perform the private sector project reviews and analysis rapidly to support our Clients’ time schedule, for project and loan approval processes. The disciplines include:

  • Engineering, construction and operations
  • Project control and scheduling
  • Market/Demand Study reviews and forecasts
  • Environmental analysis
  • Economic and Financial analysis
  • Risk evaluation

Our Services

With a management base in Washington, DC, and project offices in San Jose, C. Rica, Sao Paulo and Santiago, Chile plus Southampton, UK, we can assemble the teams described above rapidly as required by project master schedules. Our scope of work responsibilities are flexible, covering some or all of the following:

  • Project preparation studies
  • Market and technical reviews for loan appllications
  • Construction risk assessment for evaluating applications for guarantees
  • Periodic monitoring of construction phases
  • Periodic monitoring during start up and operations of the project

In summary the evaluation of private and public sector infrastructure projects requires experience in working with local government agencies, local infrastructure professionals, a knowledge of public data sources for projects, and bringing all the components together in a report classifying the quality and adequacy of the Sponsor (or Borrower’s) project preparation documentation. This will include identifying deficits or missing components necessary to evaluate the Business Plan and Financial Models for the project.
