Bond Engineer & Financing

When new debt is being issued, utility companies need a comprehensive system review from independent engineers with both financial and technical know-how. From a water system to an electric grid, we offer rigorous reviews from engineers and financial consultants who are knowledgeable about every aspect of the utility.


We help utilities fulfill their bond requirements, with a team of financial analysts and engineers that have the specific skills and experience to thoroughly assess their systems. We help you:

  • Develop a comprehensive and independent review of your system from financial, technical, operational, environmental and regulatory standpoints.
  • Prepare bond engineer reports to fulfill bond requirements.
  • Build out financial models to show how a bond is feasible.
  • Support the preparation of official statements.


Unlike other consultants, our 1898 & Co. team taps into a large network of specialists — including engineers — to review a utility’s system. Our consultants and engineers have:

  • Broad experience in the utility landscape.
  • Technical and financial knowledge.
  • The ability to pull from a larger engineering firm.
  • Experience working within the water, wastewater and electric utility industries.
