Property Condition Assessments & Commercial Building Inspections

Property Condition AssessmentsThe F&D team has a wealth of knowledge and decades of experience conducting facility and property assessments. Accurate information about the condition of your building or facility forms the foundation for ensuring smooth operations today and planning for future needs. (See our blog, The Value of a Property Condition Assessment). Whether you are buying, selling or leasing a building, we can provide risk management and peace of mind for a successful transaction.

Our staff has conducted hundreds of assignments and can provide you with a detailed Property Condition Report that will be a clear, accurate and independent 3rd party review of your property. Our report will provide insight with a focus on current condition, maintenance needs and will help you prioritize maintenance/renovation projects to so that you can make informed capital planning decisions. Our inspections typically include:

  • Structural frame & building envelope
  • Foundation & pavement
  • Mechanical, electrical and plumbing
  • Roofing systems
  • Vertical transport (elevators)
  • Life safety systems
  • Phase I and II assessments
  • Site investigations and reporting
  • Estimation of probable costs
  • Management of repair work
  • Facility Condition Assessments

For complex manufacturing, warehouse and distribution facilities we help clients plan the best overall assessment strategy for their needs, which may include a mix of different approaches for different types of facilities. We offer multi-year contracts to assist organizations in maintaining accurate data for capital planning and for budgeting as part of their long-term capital plan.

Systems Lifecycle Assessment

Our lifecycle assessments focus on the evaluation of major building systems such as HVAC, plumbing and electrical. F&D engineers collect condition and cost data needed to determine required renewal investments based on observed condition and remaining useful life of each system.

Cost Segregation Studies

We can perform an in-depth study of your new or existing property to help you generate cash flow savings.
