Name of Project: Construction of suburban recreational house for the elderly
The main purpose of the investment project is the creation of 5 ***** level recreational house for the elderly, providing the full range of services (accommodation in comfortable rooms with modern facilities (in the cottages and the main building), the organization of nursing care and visiting doctors' consultations (as needed) , organization of cultural activities, meals in restaurants and cafes).
The project is aimed at providing services to the elderly, whose level of income or, more likely, the level of income of members of their families is above the average. Number of elderly people staying in the house at the same time does not exceed 70. Such a small number of residents is established basing on international experience in order to provide individual attention to each guest. The project concept involves building 10 cottages for 2 to 4 people, the main building with a capacity of 40 people, as well as various infrastructure facilities required for a comfortable stay of the elderly.
In accordance with the requirements of the customer the specialists of "SOLEV" developed a business plan with a financial model and translated it into English. The documents in the project proposal were needed to attract foreign investment into the project.
The rapid growth of tourism and business activity in Russia creates opportunities for the development of hotel business. The creation of modern tourism infrastructure is impossible without hotel services industry which is its important component. Currently, the most popular are the 2-3 star hotels, oriented to business-audience and tourists with average income. But due to the depreciation of fixed assets there is a clear lack of accommodations that meet modern standards.
Given the trends in the industry, the management of the group of companies "Diamant" decided to reconstruct the group’s hotel complexes, which are located in the cities of Volgograd and Volzhskiy. The purpose of reconstruction of hotel complexes was to increase the comfort of the rooms and to expand the range of services offered to clients in accordance with modern requirements. The existing hotel complexes of "Diamant" Group feature a prime location in the central regions of Volgograd and Volzhskiy and the proximity to major highways. The first stage of the investment project was the reconstruction of the hotel, located in the city of Volgograd. For this purpose, experts of IA "SOLEV" carried out the structuring of the project, prepared a set of documents for the organization of financing based on which they attracted a line of credit from one of the largest banks in Russia with total funding of more than U.S. $ 9 million.
One of the most important works carried out by IA “Solev” in 2006-2007 we consider the development of conceptual approaches to the development of All-Russian Exhibition Centre (VVC) on conditions of public-private partnership - the order of GAO "VVC", obtained based on the results of the international competition among the leading consulting and development companies of the world.
It is no secret that in the last 10 years, many attempts were made to offer ideas of the reformation of the architectural and landscape complex VVC. Unfortunately, most of the ideas of the developers have not been put into practice in the first place because they are not based on a real funding mechanism. In addition, it is a challenge to develop a comprehensive functional concept for such a multi-faceted and promising, but at the same time contradictory to the historical aspect object as VVC.
We are proud of the fact that in early 2008, the strategy of development of VVC - object unique in terms of its historical significance and functionality - was based on proposals of our company. It was approved by the Board of Directors of JSC "GAO VVC" and we also received a letter of gratitude from the management of All-Russian Exhibition Center (GAO "VVC").
We are confident that implementing the development program proposed by IA “SOLEV”, VVC can function effectively in the modern conditions and take a leading position in the global market of exhibition and congress services.
A proposed scheme of public-private partnership will allow to attract investors and to satisfy the interests of the shareholders of "VVC" on mutually beneficial terms.
IA “Solev” jointly with KPMG company organized the acquisition by the Coalco company of a former construction division of the Ministry of Defense of the USSR of the main all regional construction management (MARCM) “Center”, which brings together industrial, construction, commissioning, design and real estate divisions. The deal was closed in January 2008. Coalco acquired manufacturing facilities of MARCM "Center" for the project "Great Domodedovo", which involves large-scale construction in the Domodedovo district, Moscow region. By the time of the imminent release of a building site of Coalco got its own general contractor in their structure. By some estimates, the cost of MARCM "Center" is $ 300 million.
MARCM “Center” built many facilities of the Ministry of Defense, Theater of the Soviet Army, towns of Krasnoznamensk, Bolshevo Vatutinki and Korolev. MARCM “Center” MARCM “Center” has inherited all the building powers of the Ministry of Defense for the production of precast concrete, ready-mixed concrete, efficiency constructions, gas-concrete blocks. Available capacities allow MARCM “Center” to build 300,000 square meters of housing a year. Previously MARCM “Center” assets interested only such major developers as PIK Group and "Sistema-Hals".
