Commercial Property Condition Assessments
Commercial property and building inspections (also known as Property Condition Assessments or PCA’s) are important for clients seeking to know the condition of a property or real estate they may be purchasing, leasing, or simply maintaining. Our network of commercial building inspectors follow industry accepted guidelines of ASTM E2018. These commercial inspection standards help both the commercial building inspector and the client to understand the scope agreed to for the inspection including the systems or areas to be inspected, and is used as a guide to develop said scopes and procedures.
Depending on client needs or accepted risks, and property types, some inspections can be fully technical requiring additional specialist contractors, or simply a general condition assessment utilizing one or two qualified commercial building inspectors. Of course each varying degree of inspection or assessment will incur various costs and time frames as agreed or negotiated between the commercial inspection company and the client or clients.
Once the inspection or Property Condition Assessment is completed, a written report (also known as the Property Condition Report or PCR) is compiled and delivered to the client within an acceptable time frame. The Property Condition Report may include such items as concerns observed, recommendations for repairs or further inspections, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance surveys.
