Our engineering and construction back ground, coupled with our supply chain for access to specialized suppliers for relevant operations and cost data, provide the foundation and expertise for comprehensive due-diligence results. Our team can deliver a comprehensive appraisal, investigating building assets, for the following parameters:
Reporting is always accompanied by digital photographs embedded into our report, this ensures the logicality of our comments for easier understanding. Any additional information from suppliers is also accompanied by the suppliers contact details, the date upon which the information was sourced and whom we spoke to. This ensures easier flow of follow up information for any future projects and/or any additional information which might be required by our client.
Similar titles,essentially for the Due Diligence upon the services, or fixed assets, which support the operations of the building. Typically these fixed assets are the biggest energy consumers, such as electors, Chillers and Lights, and they hold the greatest cost for upgrades and/or replacement.
Obsolescence is the greatest key factor when considering replacement of these assets, as the older technical equipment becomes, the harder is it to source. For example, the printed circuit-boards which controls 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.
Due Diligence in HVAC can offer some genuine opportunities for major savings and major costs. Consideration for "end of life" costs on major pant equipment must include the installation. Its pointless using just the value of the equipment as it may on constitute only circa 25% of the overall cost of replacement.
Given the technologies with "Building Management Systems" (BMS), automation, refrigerant gases and chillers, there may be serious costs savings in energy consumption in replacing or upgrading existing HVAC plant, even though it is not at the end of its life term.
New technologies are often smaller and have been designed to be dismantled and delivered via elevator services, as opposed to the huge costs involved with "craning" the equipment into the building from the street. New installation costs, engineering strategies have already reduced new plant delivery and installation times and budgets, compared to ten, or fifteen years ago.
