Maximising Investment Opportunities

Benefit from our proven track record of helping clients make informative investment decisions.  

We understand that investors are looking for the added value when considering a purchase, which is why our pre-acquisition surveys not only look at the fabric on the building and its current state but also reviews the opportunities that are hidden within, and the environmental liabilities of its location.

We provide a detailed breakdown of the expected repairs and maintenance, as well as re-instatement costs, alongside identifying the enhancements which, if implemented, would help your property reach its full potential and stand out in the competitive market. Whether that’s increasing floorspace, creating wellbeing space, or upgrading mechanical and engineering plants to improve your building’s Energy Performance Certificate.  

Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Pre-Acquisition Surveys, Portfolio Surveys, or Vendor Surveys
