We recognise the need to optimise the value of your assets whether they are newly constructed properties or existing building stock.

We offer consultancy advice that will help you achieve best value when it comes to bringing your asset to market, with a broad range of services ranging from reliance-based structural, civil and building services condition surveys, land surveys and transport infrastructure studies through to  environmental due diligence services, ground contamination, air quality, acoustics, utility and energy studies.

With a proven track record across all sectors, our engineers and environmental scientists are located throughout the UK, providing an accessible pool of expertise to deal with all your pre-acquisition survey requirements. We offer advice that will enable you to furnish potential buyers, tenants and owners with accurate details of your property’s or site’s condition, whilst ensuring that all information is available in a clear and concise format. Our services help maximise the value, condition or usability of your buildings and land, minimising liabilities and ensuring you are safeguarded from changing statutory requirements, all while giving prospective purchasers the confidence and peace of mind they need.

With tackling the climate emergency at the top of the agenda for the built environment, the drive to repurpose and reposition existing buildings rather than demolish is now a key priority for policymakers, owners and developers alike. We have extensive experience in carrying out designs and feasibility studies for transformative design solutions that repurpose and reposition existing buildings to maximise the value of assets. Our experts provide solutions which demonstrate to investors and prospective purchasers that your building stock can be economically adapted and re-used, whilst reducing delivery programmes and minimising embodied carbon to create stunning facilities from the most modest of beginnings.

Featured Project

Following expert advice from Waterman, leading private equity investment firm, Terra Firma, acquired major East Anglian housebuilder, Hopkins Homes.

Waterman’s team provided environmental due diligence support for the takeover, seeing our specialists undertake a portfolio assessment of Hopkins Homes’ main development sites to identify any potential key environmental risks which may have either presented a material cost to progressing a site’s development or represented a significant contingent liability.

In addition, our team undertook a high-level review of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) issues associated with the business to determine any potential exposure. Terra Firma were advised by Waterman alongside Addleshaw Goddard, Deloitte, Savills and Arcadis.
