4 | Contractual Engineering


Contractual engineering of projects refers to the legal and financial structural arrangements for major real estate and infrastructure projects, taking into account the specific institutional, political, legal and regulatory context in which the project evolves. Many of the Chair’s research projects are devoted to the identification of innovative arrangements throughout the world in order to study their impact on tendering, governance, performance, financing and investments in real estate. Particular attention is given to the analysis of the effectiveness of these arrangements according to the segmentation or grouping of the project life cycle, to the risk management and allocation methods as well as the benefits between the various stakeholders in the project.
