TA Europe is a European boutique consultancy providing purchaser or vendor Technical Due Diligence (TDD) expertise in diverse real estate and infrastructure sectors. With many Partners and team members each having over 15 years key TDD experience, the team can also rely on a network of over 100 internal and external engineers, surveyors and specialists spread all over Europe to deliver Technical Due Diligence, tailored to our client’s needs.
TA Europe has an impressive track record specialising in the technical advisory of Pan-European real estate portfolio transactions, across various property sectors. Assisted by our extensive network of alliance partner consultants and offices, with sub-consultants and experts throughout the continent, TA Europe already has relevant experience in almost all countries in Europe.
Our due diligence approach is based on four key success factors:
- Mobilisation of TDD teams for single assets or larger pan-European portfolios at short notice and delivery of tailored results in diverse European languages, in line with the program set out by our clients.
- Management of expert teams and driving them to deliver timely to the reporting needs of our clients. TA Europe’s transaction managers understand the language and needs of our investment clients and are capable of focusing and filtering the required information. In every commission, one member of TA Europe’s leadership team is single point of contact for the client.
- Promptly setting up and continually improving CAPEX and repair cost schedules using an extensive database of relevant costs and knowledge from previous deals and our technical asset management experience, which precisely meet the needs of the client team and their decision-making, throughout the whole transaction process.
- TA Europe has developed a unique TDD reporting tool. With the development of the GURU tool, we were able to improve the quality of our reports, shorten the processing time and thus the project time and set the TDD report standard to a new level. The underlying cost database enables a high degree of cost certainty and comparability.
This approach has resulted in numerous, successful asset and portfolio transactions, on both the buyer’s and vendor’s side. We fully understand the needs of international financial institutions, identifying risks for lenders and investors and applying both their own knowledge and experience and the expertise of other specialists to mitigate these risks from the start of our involvement.
TA Europe offers their Due Diligence Services for standing assets as well as project developments among all asset classes and infrastructure sectors.
Following the transactions, we offer Technical Asset Management, Project or Fund Monitoring, Project Management or Cost Management services to help our clients implement the measures identified during the acquisition process and achieve all objectives in their business plan.
TA Europe is also able to offer reliance to financing parties involved in portfolio transactions, such as funders or sub-sale acquisition parties.
Tailored TDDs to save Time and Fees
Some Investors and Vendors provide us with their standard scope of services, others ask us to provide our own service proposal. In both situations, we are able to focus on the appropriate and specific needs of our clients and the deal process, in the context of the time frame, available technical documentation, reference to previous TDDs or expert reports, the size and location of the site(s), options for property inspections, the setting up of the vendor/buyer team and other conditions of the planned transaction. This all enables us to offer tailored TDD options, which greatly assist the client to be provided with the relevant information faster, involve the right experts and enable potential savings in transaction costs in cases where ‘deal breakers’ occur.
