Project Management

Project management

The UNEX Group realizes complex turnkey projects.

UNEX is engaged in all project stages – from the business idea to fund-raising and government backing to supporting the facility until it reaches business performance targets.

We stand ready to launch a project in cooperation with your company or to join it at any stage of preliminary and design studies. UNEX also offers its customers services regarding the selection of investment-worthy venues for project realization.

To secure financing, UNEX attracts resources from both Russian and foreign banks. The objective of fund-raising is to create an investment-worthy environment for customers that purchase Russian products and services or those of foreign origin. We may also offer our customers additional benefits thanks to our long-standing cooperation with government ministries and agencies on both regional and federal levels.

Over the last three decades, we have successfully completed projects in more than 10 countries. We operate globally in the sphere of initiating, developing, financing, constructing and managing mid- to large-scale projects. Our team realizes projects in agricultural and greenhouse business, biotechnology, logistics and construction of complex infrastructural facilities.

UNEX bears overall responsibility for the coordination of activities between contractors at every stage of a project, from the business idea to commissioning, and guarantees that works are performed at proper quality levels and in strict compliance with the project execution schedule. As the customer’s representative and the project integrator, UNEX carries out a three-layer analysis of tender bidders and their submissions, as well as offers its recommendations on the engineering and commercial advantages and shortfalls of each commercial offer. The essential function of UNEX is the alignment of activities of all investment project participants, tackling issues related to dependencies between contractors, and the control of performance.

If the customer has any preferences in terms of specific equipment and materials to be used in the realization of the investment project, we may assess their compliance with process parameters and statutory requirements.

Investment projects are realized on the basis of EPCM (Engineering, material Procurement, facility Construction and project Management) contracts. Employing EPCM contracts in agriculture is justified from the technology development perspective of intensive projects that involve many diverse business processes that have a common responsibility center accountable for the final result.

As part of EPCM, UNEX carries out the following activities:
  1. Substantiation of the business idea and formulation of the project realization strategy.
  2. Estimation of the production plan.
  3. Development of the engineering project.
  4. Development of process layouts and production plans for crop farming.
  5. Development of the investment project’s financial model.
  6. Development of the business plan for the investment project, project presentation, management of successful interviews with the loan committee, and financing which may include procurement of funds from foreign banks.
  7. Preparation of project design documentation and construction activity monitoring.
  8. Preparation of detailed design documentation including installation activity and launch monitoring.
  9. Support of the project at every stage including activities aimed at bringing the project to planned profitability targets.
