A property condition assessment is used to determine whether a facility’s current conditions may have a significant detrimental impact on its continued operation, lend to depreciated property value or create an ongoing maintenance issue as a result of materials and/or system defects.
Our typical assessment includes a thorough site evaluation, interviews with personnel and tenants, inquiries to the local building and zoning departments, and a review of available client-provided construction documents such as plans and specifications. Upon request, we will also perform a detailed roof assessment, lead, mold or asbestos consulting, water and air infiltration testing, and a number of qualitative evaluation services such as infrared thermography.
In addition, with forensic investigation as one of our core service lines, we have a unique perspective for design, design review, condition assessments, building management and on-site quality assurance of building systems. This perspective allows us to identify and solve issues during the design and construction phase and ultimately saves all parties time and money.
Furthermore, we will also conduct visual inspections of building system components including:
- Site Development
- Building Exterior and Interior
- Building Structure
- Roofing and Conveyance Systems
- Electrical and Plumbing Systems
- Evidence of Termite Infestation
- Life Safety/Fire Protection
- Accessibility Compliance
