Pre Acquisition and Tender Advice
Every project that we undertake has our ‘eyes’ on the client’s commercial imperatives. Our advice is always carefully thought through and we are well regarded within the industry for our ability to identify risks for our clients.
We always fully immerse ourselves in each client’s scope, programme and budget and ensure that we understand their appetite for risk. Outputs from advice we provide at this stage can include risk registers, due diligence reports, strategies to mitigate technical risk or overcome technical challenges along with high level cost appraisals to inform sale and purchase negotiations.
