Technical due diligence (TDD)
TDD of real estate assets Our experts analyse the building structure, materials and technical systems to identify structural, technical, environmental and financial risks and opportunities.
TDD of industrial assets (plants and equipment) We determine the value and future viability of technical installations and equipment, as well as review efficiency and competitiveness of plant technology and production processes.
We provide a technical perspective by checking the validity of capital and operational expenditure assumptions. We also determine requirements for future investments and development of operational costs.
Environmental due diligence (EDD)
We perform integrated analysis of existing contaminations in soil or building materials, indoor pollutants, waste management and other environmental factors.
We narrow down environmentally sensitive areas and estimate the potential financial risk.
Sustainability due diligence (SDD)
Our experts evaluate your assets’ long-term sustainability value by looking at their current state and potential risks.
SDD serves as an initial assessment in line with common sustainability rating systems’ (BREEAM, LEED) guidelines.
