Commercial property condition report building inspections.

Our knowledge and experience sells not cheap or fast inspections.

Erosion, roofing, structural, cladding, electrical, plumbing, foundations, mold, dry rot are part of our inspection process. Buyer / investors need to know exactly what condition the property is in. Our reports provide recommendations on repairs, end of life on building materials, probable causes of damage. We also will test mechanical HVAC-R equipment, gas fired equipment. Testing involves more than turning up the thermostat! We also can test paint and drinking water for lead on request. Radon testing is something we also conduct utilizing electronic equipment. Sewer pipe scope inspection if required. ADA-American disabilities Act, yes we understand the importance and will include in our report.

The roofing structure and framing of each building is of the most importance. Bearing loads on main supports is often overlooked. The exterior grounds surrounding the building has a large impact on the foundation. Hydrostatic pressures or faulty poor quality workmanship has caused failure. While many inspectors are focused on windows and doors our focus is on the clients investment!

Commercial Property Inspections

Building materials like lead, mold and asbestos are often hidden in the recesses of buildings, or under layers of subsequent renovation and refinishing. If you or your environmental consultant do not know what to look for regarding a commercial property inspection, then toxic materials might be easily overlooked – which is very problematic and hazardous.

Whole Building or System Approach

Most of our clients request a standard narrative Property Condition Report.  The narrative report discusses each building system and will describe all of the significant concerns or defects that were found during the inspection. There are two main approaches in designing an inspection; the whole building approach and the systems approach.

 

Experience The Difference

Building Analyst Group Inc provides clients with the necessary due diligence information to make an informed decision to purchase a property.

  • Document review, research and interview with the current owner

  • Thorough walk-through survey of the property to gather additional information for due diligence

  • Observation of typical systems, including: grounds, site, parking lot, utilities, structure and building envelop, mechanical and electrical systems, interior components and roof

  • Preparation of Property Condition Report (PCR) with photos based on the information obtained from the interview, document research and walk-through survey

  • PCR identifies the physical deficiencies* and probable costs for the suggested remedies, outlined in an Executive Summary

    Physical deficiencies are conspicuous defects or material deferred maintenance of a subject property’s systems, components, or equipment. Typically, this excludes deficiencies that may be remedied with routine maintenance or minor repairs.

   Commercial Building Inspections including data collection, we provide a complete evaluation of your mechanical & electrical equipment. Our team analyzes many different factors: building materials, thermal and air barriers, building pressures, air balance, duct air flow rate, HVAC, solar load, make up air mixture, equipment operational loads, refrigeration equipment, window R-value, and lighting. With continuous energy modeling you will always be able to review your energy program with a click of a mouse.
