Provision of adequate public safety facilities and services is a basic public good in any civilized society. Public safety includes the infrastructure facilities related to police and fire services, which help protect and safeguard populations and property from harm due to physical violence, theft, riots, strikes, arson, and other criminal and acts of civil disobedience; fire, storms, earthquakes, flooding, and other natural disasters. Public safety infrastructure generally consists of publicly and privately owned police and fire stations; headquarters and administrative buildings; training facilities; vehicle maintenance facilities; water (fire hydrant) distribution systems; communications facilities; forensics and diagnostics laboratories; prisons and correctional facilities; police and fire barracks and housing facilities; and other similar related assets. The mix between public and private ownership and operations of each category of educational facility varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
To be clear, the topic of "public safety infrastructure" does not include any element of the police, fire, prison and correctional services which occur within the respective facilities. "Public safety infrastructure" involves the planning, design, financing, operations and maintenance of the police and fires stations, buildings and related facilities and assets. Auxiliary assets related to public safety facilities can include assets such as interior and exterior furnishings; parking facilities; building heating, cooling and ventilation (HVAC) systems and/or campus district heating and cooling plants and systems; communications networks and systems; maintenance facilities; restricted entry, security and surveillance systems and facilities; food/dining services; and in some cases, on-campus housing and barracks, childcare and fitness facilities, and other student, staff facilities. The functional design and operation of each type of public safety facility needs to accommodate the exact types of police, fire, correctional or other related activities that occur within the respective type of facility.
DCS experts can assist both public and private sector clients in evaluating, planning, financing, developing, constructing, operating and managing all types of public safety infrastructure assets.
In the public safety infrastructure segment, DCS experts can add significant value through application of innovative technologies and processes, and public-private partnerships. Our advisory services help our clients align the capabilities of private sector capital, innovation, "know-how", efficiencies, life-cycle operational and maintenance discipline, and management resources with the societal objectives of providing access to highly functional, high-quality and well-maintained public safety facilities. Our experts also have significant experience and competence in delivering social infrastructure assets under various development, financing, operating and ownership models, including Design-Build (D-B), Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC), Design-Build-Finance (DBF), Operations & Maintenance (O&M), Design-Build-Transfer (DBT), Design-Build-Operate-Transfer (DBOT), Design-Build-Operate-Maintain (DBOM), Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain (DBFOM), Design-Build-Own-Operate (DBOO), Design-Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (DBOOT), and similar variations. We also have significant experience advising on public-private partnership (P3), privatization and M&A transactions within the infrastructure/social infrastructure space. Our broad and global experience also includes all forms of P3 models, under a regulated or deregulated user fee regimes, long-term availability payment, user-fee and hybrid concession and/or lease transactions as well as stock/share, trade and asset sales/acquisitions, joint-ventures (JVs) and Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) with respect to infrastructure/social infrastructure companies and assets.
Within the public safety infrastructure segment DCS experts maintain relationships with related project consultants and participants including: both international and local legal advisors; technical, engineering and environmental/social advisors, economic/market consultants; contractors, vendors and technology providers; strategic and financial equity sponsors; lenders (including commercial lenders, international/development financial institutions (IFIs/DFIs), Export Credit Agencies and Export-Import Banks (ECA/Ex-IMs), institutional lenders, bond funds and investment banks) and credit rating agencies (if applicable). We are always prepared and highly experienced in taking on a lead transaction advisory or project/program management role where we coordinate and manage (in some cases, procure and retain via subcontract) various technical, legal and other consultants required for the project. On behalf of our clients we are also prepared and accustomed to leading and concluding negotiations with governmental/public sector or equity sponsors, contractors and venders, lenders, rating agencies and regulators, as may be relevant for a given project.
In many client cases, there may also be a significant nexus between public safety infrastructure facilities and other sectors that we specialize in, such as technology and telecommunications (urban mobility, intelligent transportation systems), transportation (parking facilities and systems, rail, bus and shuttle systems), real estate (mixed-use, shared-use, transit-oriented development), and others, as relevant. We are prepared to bring our complementary expertise in these other sectors to our public safety sector clients, as their specific project may benefit. There may be many collaborative partnership opportunities between diverse companies and public and private service providers, who may also have synergistic objectives and opportunities related to public safety infrastructure assets and systems. We can help our clients expand the horizons of their project and analyze and understand synergistic economic and commercial impacts related to public safety infrastructure assets and services. This will help forge potential new innovative partnerships with both private and public sector parties, where significant added-value can be realized.
