Project due diligence consultants

Our multi-disciplinary team of consultants deeply understands each stage of a construction project – and how effective due diligence prevents potential project pitfalls and costly errors.

Naismiths’ data-led analytical approach and wealth of experience throughout the construction industry enables the identification of and resolution of possible issues at every stage.

We conduct thorough investigations for every investment opportunity. This includes technical due diligence for pre-acquisition and disposal and technical due diligence around asset recovery, including new lend, existing lend, M&A, MBO and Company Health Checks. We have a nationwide network of senior and specialist chartered consultants to deliver assessments and appraisals.

Our informed approach prioritises consistent communication with all stakeholders and importantly identifies any risks that might derail or delay a project. Using Our analytics

we can more accurately predict and monitor cost, risk and programme duration. Further capabilities include the ability to stress-test assumptions on all the key project variables and consider the risk profile of an entire property portfolio.

Naismiths has a proud 60-year history of protecting and advising funders, investors and developers and now has a 50-strong team in eight UK cities working across a range of project monitoring, building services and restructuring and advisory disciplines.

We thrive on our commitment to delivering the best results through a fully joined-up approach, equipping our clients with everything they need to make the right decisions.

Naismiths sends clear, concise and professional reports which offer a precise and up-to-date position of the development project. Naismiths’ reports allow the lender to make an informed decision on funding property developments. Most importantly, Naismiths has been exceptional when further investigation or analysis is required. The company has always offered a high level of service throughout the duration of a development and the surveyors are always willing to provide further feedback when needed.
