EPCS has a long and distinguished track record in the provision of investment and development services that meet the very specific goals and objectives of clients. Our expertise covers all procurement and contracting models, enhanced through experience across residential, mixed-use, transport, education and health facilities.
Through our investment professionals we understand the financial risks that major capital investments in buildings and infrastructure assets carry. With our expertise in analyzing public and private sector stakeholder requirements, we can maximize the investment to create additional client and end-user value.
Our services include Middle East, Europe and Australia based property development, and structured property and infrastructure financing. These cover the full range of pre-construction services including feasibility studies and investment appraisals, lifecycle costs and management, through to complex PFI and PPP investment arrangements and management. The successful deployment of our Symmetry 2020 information modelling and Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) approaches in the delivery of social infrastructure is also helping create public sector facilities that provide all stakeholders with more viable and sustainable returns over the longer term.
