Evaluate your properties to achieve higher value contributions
Due diligence is the process of evaluating the current state of a target company’s assets prior to an acquisition or an investment decision. It is the standard and precautionary care that should be taken in order to make informed decisions before entering into a transaction or signing a contract. Conducting due diligence will reduce the level of risk inherent in investments, planning and future use of real estate and industrial assets.
Our due diligence service cover
Technical due diligence (TDD)
For 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. For TDD of industrial assets (plants and equipment), we determine the value and future viability of technical installations and equipment, and review the efficiency and competitiveness of plant technology and production processes. We use a holistic approach to check the plausibility of capital expenditure and operational expenditure assumptions, and identify possible needs for future investments and the development of operational costs. This provides a technical perspective for evaluating whether the business and financial targets of a transaction are realistic.
Environmental due diligence (EDD)
With our expertise in local and international environmental legislation, 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 risks.
Sustainability due diligence (SDD)
TÜV SÜD’s experts look at the current state and potential risks of your assets to evaluate long-term sustainability value. SDD serves as an initial assessment in line with the guidelines in common sustainability rating systems (BREEAM, LEED). We investigate a building’s potential sustainability score, recommend the most suitable system and ways to improve its rating.
