Assessing every property’s true potential

Due Diligence, assessing the essence of a building and its systems before a purchase deal is finalized, is a critical step in the Real Estate Life Cycle. Our Due Diligence practice is known worldwide, due largely to our unique combination of technical and business know-how. We complement our solid, in-house know-how with that of specialized environmental consultants, such as geotechnical and environmental experts, to provide comprehensive due diligence services.

Inspecting and protecting

Our focus is on protecting our clients’ interests—whether they are REITs, pension funds, educational institutions, or foreign wealth funds. Sometimes that means delivering news that prevents a deal from moving ahead. Other times, our investigations arm clients with proprietary information that enables them to renegotiate the terms of a deal—often saving them millions of dollars. Or we provide insight that allows strategizing on technical or timing options that allow the deal to advance with full awareness of the costs to accurately underwrite the purchase.

Rolling up our sleeves

When performing due diligence, we get to know the infrastructure and underpinnings of a building—the roof, the building envelope, the elevators, every pipe and switch, every beam and window. Our professionals revel in being on site, getting their hands dirty. This thoroughness enables us to uncover critical issues others might overlook.
