Protect Yourself From Lawsuits & Liability. Consult With A Professional Licensed Inspection Firm Like US.


We provide the unique service of commercial building inspection to help you understand the rules and regulations set forth by the American Disabilities Act if your building is in compliance.

 


If you never had the opportunity to review the regulations of the American Disabilities Act you should do so. Each time a building has undergone a remodel you will have to upgrade that building to the latest regulations. If you just purchased a commercial building you may want to check to see if that building meets the standard ADA regulations. The following are a few items to review

  • Loading & unloading area

  • number of ADA spaces you need for parking

  • entryway doors

  • bathrooms

  • signage

  • self serve counters

  • swimming pools

  • spas

  • communications

The Department of Justice’s revised regulations for Titles II and III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) were published in the Federal Register on September 15, 2010. These regulations adopted revised, enforceable accessibility standards called the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, "2010 Standards." On March 15, 2012, compliance with the 2010 Standards was required for new construction and alterations under Titles II and III. March 15, 2012, is also the compliance date for using the 2010 Standards for program accessibility and barrier removal.

The 1991 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, printed as Appendix A of the title III regulation in the Code of Federal Regulations, July 1, 1994 could be used for new construction and alterations under Titles II and III until March 14, 2012.

The Department has assembled an official online version of the 2010 Standards to bring together the information in one easy-to-access location.  It provides the scoping and technical requirements for new construction and alterations resulting from the adoption of revised 2010 Standards in the final rules for Title II (28 CFR part 35) and Title III (28 CFR part 36).

The Department has also compiled Guidance on the 2010 Standards from the revised regulations for Titles II and III. This explanatory information from the regulations addresses the scoping and technical provisions of the 2010 Standards.

If you have questions about the ADA Standards and want to talk to a Department of Justice ADA Information Specialist, go to the ADA Information Line page for the Department's toll-free telephone numbers and times of operation.

The roofing structure and framing of each building is of the most importance, main support beams are sometimes overlooked by less experienced inspectors. The exterior grounds surrounding the building has a large impact on the foundation. Hydrostatic pressures or faulty poor workmanship will cause failure. Commercial buildings are engineered & built different when compared to residential, you need a qualified experienced company.

Radon testing is something we also conduct utilizing electronic equipment, sewer pipe scope inspection when needed. Windows, doors, glazing areas, insulation & all contribute to air leakage and higher energy bills. These areas are inspected and noted on the report.

Environmental: building testing will conclude if the building has clean or poor air quality. We provide testing on CO, CO2, formaldehyde, PCBs, lead testing in soil, building materials, electronic radon testing, hvac air flow & temperature.


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. 


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

  • 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.

We utilize many methods including our building science technology to provide a higher level of inspections for our clients. We inspect small to large commercial buildings with professional detailed satisfactory results. Give us a try to see the difference.


Indoor Air Quality Testing

Building Testing

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.

Our success can be attributed to our commitment to provide our clients with the highest level of responsiveness and communication. We focus our efforts on obtaining a clear and concise understanding of our client’s objectives and goals, then specifically tailoring our services to exceed them by maximizing our efficiency.
