Technology, Engineering, Essential Building Services Due Diligence

Obsolescence is the greatest key factor when considering the replacement of the major fixed assets in your facility; as the technology-based equipment becomes older, the harder the parts become to the source. The Top three of these are the Lifts, the Building Management System and the chillers.
The fundamental operation of this equipment is based upon the capability of the sum of all its parts. That is, if a core component fails, a current version may be available off the shelf, but will it work with the rest of the obsolete equipment already installed?
Likely not, as it is not in the interest of the vendor to make backward compatible parts, as this will slow the procurement of new systems, upgrades and modernization.
Are there multiple vendors? Can the equipment be procured elsewhere? Are you locked into a contract that limits external vendors?
Understanding these industry traits, knowing when an item of equipment is, in practical terms, a low cost, but the vendor can ask for an extreme price because of the supply and demand forces on that equipment. You need to know where you stand for future capital and ongoing maintenance costs.
These parameters need to be considered when delivering a due diligence report.
