Dedicated to the design of financing and implementation of structuring international projects.

We have been recognized for 15 years in assisting public and private economic operators from the diagnosis and identification of their infrastructure needs, the implementation of investment strategies to fund raising with an ability to concretely design international projects (Europe, Middle East, Africa, America…) based on the complementary experiences of our founders, the synergy of the businesses developed between our internal entities, we cover the entire process on all types of markets such as real estate, tourism, industry, food processing, and maritime safety while ensuring a unique global offer. It is understood that our approach aims to strengthen the attractiveness of these geographical areas by building sustainable societies with the capacity to innovate.

In this perspective, in order to respond to the climatic challenges and the various major issues of our time, we also provide “SMART CITIES” solutions that integrate environmental parameters into the management of buildings to be designed with intelligent energy equipment solutions.

The ZUO and PINGAT Groups’ introduction has also marked our objective to become a partner of choice for target projects, large construction programs, which can be complex by creating bridges between the 4 continents, Africa, Europe, America, Asia, with the desire to develop projects of all sizes on a global basis.
