Infrastructure Advisory

Infrastructure is the backbone of our country and Government has committed massive investment to build and maintain new infrastructure. The biggest need currently, in both the public and private sectors, is infrastructure projects which are efficient, cost-effective, sustainable, delivered in a transparent manner, and which achieve the country’s strategic development goals.

Do your advisers and auditors have the financial experience to guide you with regards to infrastructure projects and can they complete a project assurance review with ease?

Our Infrastructure Advisory professionals work in both the public and private sector. We understand that infrastructure advisory demands a special approach: single-minded focus, hands-on delivery, and a commitment to co-operative working. It’s this understanding that allows us to advise our clients appropriately during an infrastructure project, from inception through to implementation and contract management. We also provide focused infrastructure audit support to achieve performance goals and the required standard of infrastructure assets. Being part of the global BDO network, we provide our clients with support as they expand into Africa or internationally.
