Engineering Consulting

Quality infrastructure and easy access thereto boosts the well-being of communities and fuels economic growth. Enhancements to roads, dams, landfills, and energy facilities, among others, are key to the health and adequate living standards of citizens as well as business efficiency. Such improvements serve to save time, increase reliability, and enable the delivery of higher-quality services. However, many countries in transition continue to suffer from poor infrastructure.

Pertinently, PMCG works with municipalities, government agencies, and investors to modernize existing public infrastructure, and to provide innovative solutions in the establishment of new infrastructure. 

Engineering Consulting Services

    Feasibility Study

    Technical Due Diligence

    Water Resource Planning

    Permit Management

Specifically, we develop Feasibility Study to ascertain the viability of infrastructure through assessing its technical, financial, institutional, and socio-economic circumstances. Using Environmental Analysis, we can also assess the effect of a given infrastructure project on the surrounding environment, including the impact on forestry, vegetation, flora and fauna, microclimates, and soil erosion. After doing so, we then suggest ways to mitigate any unwanted effects. With regard to the impacts of the given project on the population, PMCG conducts socio-economic studies of project areas and then prepares a Resettlement Policy. Based on Technical Due Diligence, we identify and mitigate potential infrastructure project risks, and ensure the project’s financial robustness prior to a funding decision, by predicting its performance and revenue levels. Meanwhile, in order to maximize land-use efficiency and effectiveness, we prepare Land Use Plan, separating residential, mixed residential-commercial, commercial, industrial, touristic, protected, reserved, and special purpose land types, and accordingly developing necessary regulations. 

To manage water systems better, we provide a Water Resource Planning service, taking into consideration the supply, demand, as well as quality of water, environmental protection, financial planning, and citizen engagement. Fee Estimation is also an important component of our services – we calculate gate fees for new transfer stations, landfills, and other infrastructure to ensure their sustainable operation. Elaborating Plant Concept and conducting Hydraulic Consulting are also essential parts of our engineering services.

We also provide Permit Management with respect to infrastructure construction, while we also offer Asset Management for all public infrastructure assets. Routinely, we elaborate a comprehensive, consistent, and systematic approach to manage a given project’s Health and Safety system. Most importantly, we conduct Construction Supervision services to monitor the construction processes, and ensure compliance with health and safety regulations.
