Project Financing

MECO understands the importance of partnerships and teamwork to make projects a reality in today’s challenging economic environment. Our professionals take a leadership role in the development of sound financing strategies and recommendation of options for our client’s consideration for their public works projects. Multiple funding sources are often necessary to meet project affordability, project goals, and loan commitment requirements. We propose solutions that are realistic, project appropriate, budget-friendly, and always based on sound engineering practices.

Through our three decades of providing engineering service, MECO has established strong, long-lasting relationship with various agencies throughout Missouri and Illinois.
