Fire Risk Due Diligence Services

Ensure safety at current or prospective facilities

Your Fire Risk Challenges

Whether you are an investor, a financial institution or an owner of an asset, unidentified fire protection deficiencies or hazards in buildings and plants are a serious concern. System deficiencies and minimally protected hazards can contribute to increased property loss, business interruption causing a loss of rent and unforeseen operating costs. Developers may not be familiar with standards and regulations concerning fire and natural hazards which can influence property value or put employees at risk if deficient systems are currently in place.

Understanding Benefits to Fire Protection Due Diligence

Due diligence is the process of evaluating the current state of a facility prior to acquisition or an investment decision. It is the standard and precautionary care that should be taken in order to make informed decisions before entering into the transaction. A fire protection due diligence report informs potential buyers about the current level of fire protection present within a facility, and also provides them with recommendations and potential costs required to make that facility meet code minimums for their specific operation.

Fire protection due diligence reviews should always be considered when evaluating potential acquisitions. Not only will they help determine how much capital expenditure may be required for fire protection upgrades, but they also reduce the risk inherent in investments, planning and future use of real estate and industrial assets.
