Studies

Proper research and feasibility studies are fundamental to the success of any project. Our extensive services include needs analysis, pre-feasibility studies and bankable feasibility studies in various fields including infrastructure development, industrial, logistics, transportation and trade-off studies between various transport options especially in the mining sector, as well as commercial and residential development projects.

We are well versed with the criteria for performing the above studies where international funding is provided, such as the EU-Africa Infrastructure Trust Fund, KfW, the African Development Bank and GIZ.

We further offer flood line analysis studies, inundation studies, hydraulic modelling, situation assessment and optimisation of sources and bulk supply infrastructure, Spatial Integrated Development studies and Structure Plans.

Turning your big idea into a bankable project requires careful consideration long before you break ground. Extensive research and multi-stage evaluations will help highlight any potential legal, environmental and financial risks to avoid investing in a project with unfavourable prospects. Our comprehensive approach manages the process from start to finish, including rigorous opportunity and feasibility studies, seamless implementation and skilful operations to realise your development dream on time and within budget.
