Pre-Purchase Due Diligence

For sites, that are not located within new subdivisions, it may be useful to undertake pre-purchase due diligence to identify any “fish hooks” for a given site, that may add to development costs.

Pre-Purchase Due Diligence

We can complete a variety of inspections to ensure peace of mind when purchasing a new site.

Geotechnical Engineering

We undertake desktop and field investigations to provide indicative foundation options for a given site, and identify any potential issues that may affect the site, including uncontrolled fill or historical slope instability. Often, the information collected at during the due diligence stage can then be collated and used to produce a geotechnical report in support of building consent.

Environmental Engineering

We can undertake Preliminary Site Investigation (PSI) or Detailed Site Investigations (DSI) to establish any contamination issues that would need to be remediated, should the site be purchased and developed. 

Structural Engineering

This includes an Initial Seismic Assessment (ISA) for potentially earthquake prone buildings.

Survey and Civil Engineering

This will include initial assessments of District Plan requirements for subdivision, for example, whether stormwater and wastewater requirements are able to be met for a given piece of land if these requirements are unable to be met for the proposed number of lots, then subdivision may not be viable.
