Due Diligence

Environmental Due Diligence (EDD) is an important part of most mergers / acquisitions and the purpose is to evaluate potential liabilities associated with land quality, as well as other environmental and Health & Safety issues.

Solutech Environmental Consultants (Solutech) strong foundation was initially built on providing exceptional due diligence services. We know these services are critical to real estate transactions. Acquiring any interest in real property, whether through a simple real estate purchase or a larger corporate transaction, the importance of undertaking a thorough environmental due diligence investigation cannot be overlooked. Environmental, health and safety risks may translate into financial and reputational liabilities. Legal compliance, historical pollution or the presence of hazardous materials such as asbestos are now essential considerations in real estate as well as corporate transactions.

Solutech provides our clients with information that is clear and easily understood.
