Our team is the largest consultancy provider of real estate environmental due diligence in the UK, and we are able to draw upon in-house technical experts from a wide variety of specialties to address any issue from asbestos to flood risk, from remedial cost appraisal to energy management. 

Our clients tell us that what they value about us is our ability to translate technical risk into commercial risk and opportunity during both the transaction process and post- acquisition to support asset management.

We provide the flexibility that enables clients to choose individual stages or experts to suit time and budget requirements, whether for acquisition, divestment, refinancing, development or asset management. Our assessment methods have been developed through extensive experience; focussing on the rapid identification of material risks, which can have a significant impact on liability of ownership, occupation, value and resale.

We have the scale and footprint to support any transaction, at any stage, anywhere in the world. So whether it’s a small transaction on a single building or a large, international corporate acquisition, we can help. We have a core team of 20 DD specialist staff in the UK and over 100 DD specialists globally.

Technical expertise

We offer a wide range of services from pre-divestment reviews, right through to specialty technical due diligence and post-acquisition / merger integration support. Our in-house experts add real value through their industrial process, remediation, flood risk, permitting and infrastructure expertise. We provide technical evaluation of technologies across many sectors such as renewable energy and waste.

Our clients

We frequently provide environmental, health and safety due diligence services to a Fortune 500 global manufacturer, and have worked with this client and their legal counsel for over 20 years. Similarly, we are the preferred due diligence provider for a Fortune 100 Financial Organisation as our deliverables adhere to applicable in-country standards as well as the client’s internal stewardship and sustainability requirements.

We provided environmental due diligence support to Emerson Electric Co to buy Pentair PLC’s valves-and-controls unit in a deal worth $3.15Bn.
