About Shikun & Binui Concessions Division

The Concessions Division combines the Group’s financing, construction and operating capabilities of large-scale infrastructure projects with the extensive financial knowledge and aptitude, as well as a deep familiarity with the public sector. This unique combination renders Shikun & Binui a leading entity pertaining to PPP projects. The division is involved in most projects of this kind in Israel, as well as in a variety of mega projects worldwide.
