Property Condition Assessment

Our Commercial inspection services include: Office Buildings (low, mid and high-rise), Retail, Mixed-use, Shopping Malls, Apartment complexes, Business Parks, Hospitality, Restaurants, Industrial facilities, Warehouses, Churches/Complexes and Senior Housing.

The primary purpose of a Property Condition Assessment (PCA) is to evaluate the principle building systems.

The secondary purpose is to assign preliminary budget figures for observed conditions and projected costs for building elements which are expected to exceed their expected service lives.

A PCA is a physical evaluation of an existing building’s systems, components and site improvements. Site characteristics such as structure, roof, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and egress are typically included.

Our reports include captioned photos for clarification as well as recommendations for corrective action.

We utilize the ASTM Standard E 2018-08 as a guideline for Property Condition Assessments. This standard was specifically written for commercial real estate transactions.

Environmental Site Assessment
Environmental Site Assessments are part of the services we provide. Significant business and risk management decisions are based on the data generated by an environmental report and they require care and diligence in their execution, analysis and interpretation.

A Phase I report will alert interested parties when environmental problems or conditions are present that could later subject the property to governmental actions or create distress for a future buyer or lender. The Phase I report enables a court of law to better consider the new owner harmless from charges based on the Comprehensive Environmental Response and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCAL).


Do I need an engineer to perform a commercial inspection? Depending on the scope that you choose, an engineer may be included. The team may also include an electrician, plumber, HVAC specialist or other specialists.

What is the cost for a commercial inspection? The fee is based on the complexity of the property and the scope that you choose. The job-specific cost and scope will be presented in a written proposal for your acceptance.

When will I get the report? A summary of findings can be discussed on-site and the full written report will be presented within five business days of the site visit.
