Small Building Commercial Inspection (Office, Retail, Industrial, Warehouses)

For strata units or full buildings under four stories, our custom Property Condition Report (PCR) can be booked with as little as 24-48 hours notice and digital reports are often available the same day as the inspection. All commercial inspections go beyond ASTM E 2018-08 field inspection and reporting standards with fast report delivery at a reasonable cost for small or medium sized businesses.

Our complete report includes a review of all major components, including:

  • Site Review (Drainage, Vegetation, walkways, etc)
  • Parking (Paved Surfaces, property accesses, curbs, parking structures)
  • Building Structure
  • Exteriors (Walls, Doors, Windows)

Large Building Property Condition Assessment

If you are purchasing, leasing, financing, selling, or doing long term planning on a commercial property you need a Property Condition Assessment (PCA) to provide basic property information, condition, and cost estimates for major repairs and replacements. A full scale Solid State Commercial Inspection is done to ASTM Standard E 2018-08 which is accepted by major financial institutions for financing needs. 

Commercial inspections may require the use of specialists and consultants and typically take at least 10 business days to produce. Call our office for more information and to request a proposal.

Commercial Inspection Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What types of inspections are commercial inspections?

Commercial buildings take many different shapes such as:

  • Retail Units
  • Warehouses
  • Church's and other places of worship
  • Hotels
  • Industrial Buildings
  • Apartment Buildings
  • Office Buildings
  • Restaurants
  • Malls and Strip Malls
  1. How do we bill commercial inspections?

Our inspection billing is based on the amount of field time estimated to complete the site inspection (minimum 1/2 day) plus the cost to prepare the inspection report. This pricing model usually finds us quite competitive with others in the industry who charge per square foot which often means warehouse clients overpay for inspectors to inspect empty air.
