Hayat Brown Public Sector Real Estate Analyst

Overview

Hayat Brown is a national engineering and advisory firm that helps mission-oriented institutions advance objectives related to the management of their infrastructure and real estate assets. Our team brings a lifecycle perspective to the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of commercial and economic development projects. A bench of professional engineers assists clients with technical design, project and construction management – all with safety as our number one priority. A team of results-oriented advisors will guide clients through each stage of the development process, from feasibility and financial structuring to transaction execution. This unique blend of consulting and engineering ensures project success at every stage of its development.

Public entities and private higher education institutions face a unique set of challenges in maximizing the value and useful life of real estate and infrastructure assets. Capital and operating budget limitations often inhibit adequate maintenance, renovation and expansion of needed facilities, eventually hindering core business operations.  Debt ceilings, balance sheet limitations, and poor credit ratings may add to the challenge. Hayat Brown’s P3 | Infrastructure | Real Estate group helps institutions overcome these challenges by leveraging private capital and expertise through public-private partnerships (P3) and other performance-based infrastructure (PBI) capital improvement delivery methods.  We also help these institutions use P3 and other creative strategies to monetize underutilized real estate and infrastructure assets to fund mission critical activities.  Serving public and institutional clients exclusively, our team protects and advances institutional interests through strategy development (project feasibility and portfolio planning), transaction advisory services (valuation, partnership structuring, procurement, and negotiation), and operations support (program management, and asset management and real estate restructuring).
