In most cases, we deliver our report within 24 hours of our inspection. Our team is solution-oriented and would be proud to offer you upkeep suggestions that will prolong the life of your commercial property.

Building Inspection Coverage

For every commercial building, there are several main aspects that need to be checked during an inspection, including the plumbing, heating and air-conditioning system, electrical system, roofing, and structure. Our building inspector will go over every last detail and report back to you on what kinds of maintenance or repairs are needed for each of these systems. We can also provide you with information about the lifespan of each system and what you can expect out of them while they last. Furthermore, we can tell you about the predicted cost of maintaining each of the systems in the coming 5 years.

Another concern with large open industrial spaces, uneven grade settlement beneath large expanses of concrete slab floor. This can result in cracking where the slab is no longer sufficiently supported. Care needs to be taken to correctly identify the problem, however, since slabs will also crack from shrinkage during curing or from normal aging.

Environmental Testing

building testing will conclude if the building has clean or poor indoor air quality. We provide testing for VOCs, TVOCs, CO, CO2, formaldehyde, PCBs, lead testing in soil, building materials, electronic radon testing, hvac air flow & temperature balancing.

TAB - HVAC Air Balancing

Commercial HVAC systems new or old should be tested for efficiency, air flow, ductwork sizing, electrical, and air exchanges. Many times we find the heat exchanger on older units cracked. This will cause serious issues. We also find the HVAC system is not balanced causing efficiency issues.

Phase 1 & 2 Environmental Assessment

Also with change of use, you might be inheriting the toxic byproducts of past industrial processes that ceased to operate long before the current investor arrived on the scene. There may not be any old drums around, but hazards may still be present. This is where a Phase 1 environmental assessment is a critical component of your evaluation of the property.

Thermal Imagery

Thermography is used in detecting temperature differences.

Some inspectors may say they can detect mold or moisture in walls. This is not true. Only if there is a temperature difference in ambient temps vs the area being inspected. The best way is if the area being inspected with a thermal camera has at least plus or minus 10 degrees or more. Even then a moisture detector should be used. However with our experience we utilize thermography for electrical, motor bearings, shafts, energy management.

Commercial Building Inspections

should be left up to professionals. Costly mistakes may occur by hiring a regular home inspector for commercial inspections. Always do your due diligence before hiring an inspector. I believe our certifications, knowledge & licensing speaks for itself. Condition Property Reports,

Multiple Level & Multiple Licenses

Building Analyst Group Inc, is a multi level inspection company and holds multiple licenses. You will not find any of our competitors that retains as many licenses & certifications as us. Our clients receive more services & knowledge in building inspection & testing services.

Regardless of the level of Commercial Building Inspection (Property Condition Report) ordered, our inspector will find:

  • Inadequate design

  • Improper maintenance or worn systems

  • Equipment nearing the end of its useful life

  • Associated cost with repairs

  • Building code violations

  • Poor workmanship

Most building failures or issues will surface long after the warranty has expired. Inspecting new buildings are as important as existing buildings TEN years old or older.

Building Testing 

to evaluate air leakage, moisture intrusion, air quality, gas & oil fired equipment for efficiency, HVAC air balancing, verify energy usage / energy savings plus health & safety concerns.

PCR - PCA Property Condition Reports

will include remaining useful life of the building materials and repair estimated costs outlined in our reports.

Combustion Testing

Testing a gas or oil fired furnace or hot water heater for efficiency. Utilizing a combustion meter we can tell you if that fossil fuel appliance has a cracked heat exchanger and the efficiency.

ADA Inspections

Protect yourself and your business from unwanted lawsuits. 90% of the commercial buildings we inspect would not pass ADA regulations. Handicap people should not be neglected. It is in the best interest of the property owner to spend a few dollars and bring their property up to ADA standards. Our ADA inspection report will outline all the necessary areas. We measure areas, inspect pools & spas, loading & unloading areas, signage, ramps, doorways, self serve areas etc.

Energy Audits

Energy audits is something we have conducted on residential and commercial buildings for over ten years. We have reduced energy usage by 30% in most cases helping reduce carbon footprints. No matter the size of the building envelope.
