Technical Due Diligence

The overall objective of Technical Due Diligence is to provide clients with a qualitative evaluation of Technical risks associated with an asset such as Execution Strategy, Design, Rules and Regulations, Operations Philosophy, Equipment, and more generally, overall condition. An opinion of the overall adequacy of an asset for intended purpose/operation is typically included.

A Technical Due Diligence exercise aims to disclose risks in order to enable transaction parties to manage risks to their business objectives posed by project risks such as cost overruns, delays as well as technical and operational performance in the operations phase. Risks can be significantly reduced by highlighting important facts and provide advice on importance.

Our full range of Technical Due Diligence services aims to translate unclear dependencies into quantifiable items e.g. in the form of a risk matrix/register:

Commercial Due Diligence

The overall objective of a Commercial Due Diligence (CDD) is to scrutinize a company/assets commercial attractiveness and provide a full overview of the internal/external environment. This may typically be prior to an investment decision.

A CDD from Axess will provide a thorough understanding of a company/assets ability to meet its forecasted results including the effect of the external landscape in which it operates/will operate in. Both the competitive landscape and market share will be taken into consideration. Based on this, an informed decision on whether to proceed or walk-away can be made.

  • Design
  • Main Project Participants
  • Risk Register
  • Project team
  • Contracts
  • Project Schedule
  • Budget (CAPEX) including contingencies

Lender’s Engineer

Acting as Lenders Engineer, Axess will protect the interests of a lender for example that HSE requirements are adhered to or that quality of workmanship is in accordance with specifications. This involvement may range from following up the construction of a single piece of equipment to a complete system/ structure. Also, elements such as cost, schedule project team composition etc. would typically be included. Lenders Engineer role typically extends for a longer duration, through engineering, construction, and commissioning.

Construction Monitoring

Making sure that construction is progressing as intended is key to meeting project objectives, successful hand-over, and final acceptance. Both time, cost and quality must be monitored over time to make sure that no issue is allowed to develop into some serious issue.  

During construction monitoring reports are typically issued regularly to clients for example related to key project milestones, monthly/ bi-monthly or any other format.
