Investment Appraisals & Feasibility Studies

Clients are increasingly aware of the importance of evaluating the feasibility of a project financially to decide whether it is worth pursuing as an investment proposition. Working in conjunction with the Client and its advisors, we carry out Investment appraisals, land acquisition and cash flow studies to generate scenarios on the viability of the project and estimate the potential returns.

Investment appraisals and feasibility studies are not only useful to potential investors and developers but also banks and other financial institutions as part of the risk assessment for granting of bank facilities to avoid non-performing loan.


Loan Monitoring & Cost Audits

We carry out Loan Monitoring for banks and financial institutions, covering the following aspects:

Project Progress and Cost Audits - This involves an independent assessment of:

  • Project status in terms of the value of work done
  • Financial position of the construction project where the value of work executed is compared to the loan drawn-downs to-date
  • Audit on the cost required to complete the project
  • Viability appraisal of the anticipated total construction cost and proposed bank loan commitment and payback period

Draw-down Certifications. It is important that project loans are effectively channeled to the projects under consideration. All purchase moneys received should be offset against the loan pay-outs and not used on other non-performing projects. We provide draw-down certifications to banks on construction loans stating the following:

  • Total project cost and anticipated total project cost
  • Total value of work completed to-date and to be completed
  • Total disbursement from draw-downs made to-date
  • Sufficiency of balance of loan facility to fund balance of work to be completed
  • Amount of draw-down recommended for disbursement.

Insurance Valuations

Fire / Reinstatement insurance provides the building owner with sufficient money to carry out reconstruction of the building to a condition equal to new in accordance with current legislation in the event of damage or destruction from the specified risks or perils.

We provide assessments on such reinstatement costs for owners to purchase the appropriate insurance amount to cover their risks.
