Technical Due Diligence, Engineering Due Diligence, Building Services Due Diligence

These similar titles are essentially for the Technical Due Diligence provision upon the services or fixed assets that support the building’s operations. Typically these fixed assets are the biggest energy consumers, such as elevators, Chillers, Building Management System, Mechanical and Lights, and they hold the greatest cost for upgrades and/or replacement.
Obsolescence is the greatest key factor when considering the replacement of these assets, as the older technical equipment becomes, the harder it becomes to the source. For example, the printed circuit boards which control the lift services; these PCB’s are usually installed in the lift motor room serving the heaver high-voltage control equipment for the elevators.
These controlling printed circuit boards(PCB’s) are typically single vendor original equipment manufacture; hence, the price will increase as they become older and are phased out by the O.E.M. These parameters need to be considered when delivering a due diligence report.
The list is below is a brief outline of just a few of the fixed assets within a building’s services installation, which we would typically consider for inclusion into a due diligence report.
