If a market correction occurs in the next two or three years, now is the time to start planning what you can do to add value down the road.
5:15-6:00: Profitably Expanding the Due Diligence Work Scope with the Emerging Interest in Building Energy Performance
Presented by Anthony Buonicore, P.E., BCEE, QEP; CEO, The Buonicore Group
Driven by the growing trend toward sustainability, an area of the market that represents potential opportunity in the conduct of due diligence for a commercial real estate transaction is the growing interest in a building’s energy performance. This will eventually impact both Phase I environmental due diligence and property condition assessments (PCAs). To bring more value to clients, many firms with expertise in both Phase Is and PCAs are already adding building energy assessment capabilities to their services. The presentation will focus on this business opportunity including the business drivers, what the work might involve and how it will benefit your firm, your client and the lender.
