Mid-level hotel and children’s entertainment centre:
Kalder has been appointed as the key business development advisor to bring a major hotel chain and children’s entertainment franchise to a new market in Central Asia. Our role is to develop a fundable project concept and business plan (including cash flow and income statements), facilitate fund-raising on behalf of the client, and establish marketing and pricing policies based on market & competitor analysis.
Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation contracted Kalder to support its evaluation of and market-entry strategy for the mobile service and mining markets in Central Asia. Our team collected and presented Sumitomo with a comprehensive market analysis report, outlining the current state of affairs, future prospects and overview of key challenges for both sectors in the region.
Kalder is supporting Croatia-based Dalekovod in its bid for two CASA-1000 supported projects for the construction of overhead high-voltage electricity transmission lines in the Republic of Tajikistan, totaling 215km; with a total project value of approximately US$80 million. Two smaller projects are also being pursued to construct smaller sub-stations in rural areas of Tajikistan, estimated at US$9 million. Dalekvod has enlisted Kalder to manage all major communications with the client, to provide cost estimates for land-surveying and geotechnical work within the scope of these projects, to support its search for a local construction partner, and provide due diligence on the final selection of its local team.
