COMMERCIAL

Property Condition Assessments (PCA)  & Property Condition Reports

We perform Property Condition Assessments and Property Condition Reports for lenders and real estate investors. During the Property Condition Assessment, our  commercial building inspectors assess the subject property in order to understand the condition of the building. A Property Condition Report is generated discussing each building system and its condition. The most important parts of the Property Condition Assessment  is the Immediate Repairs Table and the Replacement Reserve Table, which help the client understand how the condition of the building will impact the asset's financial performance.  Our Commercial Building Inspection PCA reports comply with the scope of work specified in ASTM E2018 and includes a comprehensive visual inspection of the building's construction including the following:

Building structure and foundation

Roof condition and remaining useful life

Building envelope

Abreviated ADA accessibility

Electrical panels and wiring

Tenant improvements

Pavement systems

Plumbing fixtures and piping

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems

Elevators and conveyance systems

Landscape, irrigation, site grading & drainage

Our Commercial Building Inspections are done by a single experienced building inspector and/or a team of inspectors. While our inspectors are very knowledgeable, our assessments can be enhanced by our network of specialists. We maintain relationships with expert specialists in every building system. The specialist reports can then be folded into our Property Condition Report. Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) reports can be co-ordinated with our inspection.
