Monitoring Surveying & Due Diligence

Our Development Monitoring team adopt an experienced and pragmatic view of development risks, from the initial pre-commitment stages of funding or acquisition, through to project execution and post-completion.

Drawing on our significant experience and knowledge of delivering developments for a range of clients for over 50 years, our monitoring surveyors are effective in delivering commercial due diligence and development monitoring across various construction industry sectors and property based transactions. Where necessary, we draw upon support from various in-house disciplines and/or engage and manage specialist sub-consultant advice. Our advice is always tailored to the objectives of each client type and their specific requirements, whether as a lender, long term investor or owner/occupier.

Our approach is to protect the investor’s interests by providing objective and impartial advice on the development process and highlighting any potential issues which could affect those interests. We advocate a collaborative approach with developer and investor to avoid conflicts that could otherwise lead to time and cost implications. We provide the peace of mind to investors and act as a guide through the increasingly complicated minefield of the development process.

We deliver commercial due diligence and development monitoring on behalf of a range of financial institutions, investors and owner/occupiers, across developments ranging in value from <£1m to £100m+.
