meetings & interviews

Meetings and interviews can be an important aspect of an on-site survey and building history research. For tenant leased spaces, the leasees generally have a more in-depth understanding of on-going issues and previous repairs and updates than building owners. It is our goal to ensure meetings and interviews with clients and building occupants does not disrupt the business’ operations.

research & report generation

Commercial building property inspections do not end when the on-site survey is completed. Due to the unique nature of commercial properties and commercial building systems, most inspections include a detailed review of building standards and plans, and manufacturer documentation to ensure a thorough and detailed survey and commercial inspection report.

COMMERCIAL property INSPECTION

We provide commercial property inspections in Gainesville, Alachua County, and throughout North Florida and Southern Georgia. Our commercial property inspections are designed to provide real estate buyers, investors, and owners. These inspections aid in understanding the condition and functionality of the major components and systems found throughout the buildings. We inspect over 200 different systems and components throughout the exterior and interior spaces, roofs, attics, crawlspaces, electrical systems, HVAC systems, plumbing systems, and more. All commercial property inspections include thermal imaging to identify water and air leakage, functionality of the HVAC and plumbing systems, and temperature-related defects with electrical systems. A written report with full-color images is provided for all commercial property inspections within 48 hours of the completion of the on-site inspection.

/03

MULTI-TENANT INVESTOR PROPERTY INSPECTIONS

Multi-Tenant properties can consist of business and/or residential spaces. Since these properties typically house numerous tenant spaces and are commonly multi-story, the systems and components are commonly sized and equipped similarly to those of commercial properties. Further, multi-tenant buildings are required to have specialized fire separations and barriers that would not necessarily apply in a single-family dwelling space. All multi-tenant property inspections are completed through a blending of the commercial and residential inspection standards where they apply. These inspections can be used for real-estate transactions or for current building owners to assess system and component conditions and required maintenance. All reports are delivered with full descriptions of the issues identified and full color images.

Accessibilty (ADA) assessments

Accessibility Assessments review a property’s  compliance with the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design guidelines. These guidelines are for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Our Accessibility Assessments include an on-site survey of the interior and exterior areas including meeting spaces, stairways and ramps, restroom facilities, parking lots, egress and emergency access and more. A written report highlighting areas for improvement as they relate to the published Standards is provided for all Accessibility Assessments.

PHASE I ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENTS

Part of the due diligence for commercial properties includes an Environmental Site Assessment. Performed to the Standard Procedure of ASTM E1527, a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is an on-site inspection and records review by an environmental professional to identify recognized environmental concerns and petroleum products associated with the site or at surrounding properties that may impact the site. Environmental compliance is a big part of commercial property purchase and ownership.

INSURANCE 4-POINTS & TYPE I WIND MITIGATIONS (1802)

For buildings up to 3 stories in height, our inspectors can help you find deductions on your property insurance by identifying wind/hurricane mitigating features of the building’s roofing system. Our inspectors will perform an on-site assessment to the 1802 form standards set by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) and document those finds for you to submit to your insurance provider. Wind Mitigation documentation is valid for a period of 5 years and new roof covering replacements generally qualify for insurance deductions when upgrades to the roofing system are made.

/07

residential estate inspections

Large residential properties including luxury and high-end homes generally contain building components and systems typically found on commercial properties. These systems can include 3-phase electrical systems, commercial grade HVAC systems, commercial grade plumbing components, swimming pools, auxiliary buildings, and smart home features and automation. Our inspectors skilled at applying their knowledge and experience in commercial property inspection to assess these types of systems in residential estates, custom homes, and luxury properties.

/08

thermographic inspections

Thermographic assessments are used to identify temperature differentials in materials to reveal defects not observed by the un-aided eye. Our thermographic assessments can help to identify moisture intrusion issues such as roof and plumbing leaks, energy efficiency issues that can increase the demand on HVAC equipment and increase energy costs, and identify electrical and plumbing issues, defective photovoltaic systems (solar systems) and HVAC system issues not visually identifiable. We include thermographic assessments on all commercial property inspections by conducting an on-site survey and providing a written report documenting our findings and recommendations.

new construction phase inspections

Our new construction phase inspections provide oversight during the construction process to ensure your building in completed to the required plans and current standards. Independent of government inspectors, our phase inspections include on-site assessments during the various major stages of construction to assess the installation of the foundation, framing, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, roof, and other systems. We provide written reports for each phase and documents issues found and deviations from the required plans.

sedimentation & erosion control (SEC) inspections

Our inspectors are certified through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) as Certified Stormwater and Erosion Control Inspectors. SEC Inspections assist the construction industry in maintaining Best Management Practices (BMPs) for managing erosion and runoff on construction sites.  Our inspections provide on-site technical expertise in identifying and managing worksite erosion and runoff issues, as well as assisting project managers with developing and maintaining proper documentation and records keeping programs.

/11

permit history reports

Permit history reports are used to identify permitted and potentially un-permitted construction and repair activities over the history of the property. These reports can help you find work that was not properly closed out, revoked or suspended permits that work was still completed on, and help determine the age and potential remaining useful life of systems such as roof coverings, HVAC systems, and water heaters. Our inspections will conduct a full permit history investigation with the local building departments and provide a full written report of the findings.
