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 building elements which are expected  to exceed their expected service lives.

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

We  usually utilize the ASTM Standard E 2018-08 as a guideline for Property  Condition Assessments.


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

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.
