Transaction Technical Advisory Services

Smart investors understand that there are opportunities at each stage of the transaction process to enhance value and minimise risk when buying, managing or divesting businesses and property portfolios. Whether understanding liabilities during purchase, reducing operational and legislative costs, or preparing the portfolio for eventual sale, achieving maximum return on investment needs both a technical and commercial perspective.


AECOM provides a holistic specialist technical due diligence advisory service, combining over 30 years of award-winning environmental and safety due diligence experience with specialist technical engineering expertise in all areas of buildings and industrial plant and equipment condition, design and operation.


With a truly global presence we deliver transactions support services from worldwide portfolios to regional businesses or properties with speed and efficiency.


We provide clear commercial advice on complex technical issues, reduce our clients’ exposure and costs, improve returns on investment, facilitate the deal and protect reputations. Following the transaction, we help clients to integrate acquired businesses into their existing operations and manage residual liabilities associated with divested or acquired businesses and assets.
