GOVERNMENTS and WATER TREATMENT PROVIDERS
Over the last 25 years partnerships between the private and public sector has grown tremendously. The public sector has come to realize that water treatment service providers can play a much needed role. Whether it is the ability to bring specialized experience, efficiencies in operation or hard to secure financing, private companies in the water sector have regularly provided lower cost products and improved services to public clients around the world. With so many operating models available, figuring out the one best suited for your specific needs can be challenging.
UNDERSTANDING THE BEST FIT FOR YOU
Today’s decision makers for infrastructure projects face a wide variety of available options. Build, own & operate (BOO), design build operate (DBO), operation & maintain (O&M) or turnkey equipment supply all have their pros and cons. H2OProfessionals many years of experience on both sides of the table can provide guidance in understanding the details of life-cycle costs and risks of each model to help you determine what works best for your situation.
AGREEMENTS & WARRENTY ADVISEMENT
The technical aspects of legal documents can be overwhelming. Even the best attorneys can get so bogged down in the "legalese" that they can lose sight of the universal goal of procuring the best possible service or equipment at the best lifecycle costs. Experienced guidance that has written, negotiated, and operated under many such documents, knows first-hand the long-term benefits of a document drafted in a mutually beneficial basis and the pit-falls of documents drafted without the benefit of hands-on experience.
While the protective elements of legal documents that hold providers liable and detail deliverables and remedies are critical, proper document structure with the benefit of many years of actual operating experience can help shape a document based on practical matters that is less onerous for all parties and with the goal of shared risk and reward and a lower final cost to the you, the client.
