Due diligence in the construction and house building sectors
Examining the groundwork
You are thinking of acquiring or disposing of a business which either has a major capital project in progress or is involved in the construction and house building sector. Whether you are buying or selling, can you be satisfied that the financial consideration is commensurate with the opportunity and that all risks have been identified and quantified? Establishing this comfort and testing the associated issues and assumptions is challenging. But digging deep into the operational and financial dealings of the business, and its ongoing and completed construction projects, can help to alleviate such concerns.
Dig deep to support your transaction
Corporate due diligence within construction and house building companies or projects is complicated, and the inherent risk associated with live construction projects enhances the difficulties. At Deloitte we support clients on transactions involving construction companies, house builders or those with significant capital projects or property related issues. Such support can include:
Vendor assist – working for vendors to identify potential acquirers and ensure that existing construction projects are free from ongoing disputes and problems, prior to disposal.
Purchaser assist – advising an organisation wishing to acquire a business within the construction/house building sector.
Technical support – examining the technical construction and property issues associated with the potential sale of a non-industry based organisation.
