Funding and ownership models
We work with our clients to help identify and assemble funding sources for their projects, including a mix of grants, growth funds, rail industry funding and prudential borrowing. We can develop asset ownership models which enable our clients to regain funds through car parks and commercial revenue streams to pay back any prudential borrowing. In addition, we can call on help from others to assist you with finding support for your scheme.
