Commercial Property Condition Assessments (PCA's)
All of APS Commercial Property Inspection Service property condition assessments use the baseline property condition assessment process as outlined in the ASTM E-2018 standards. You can specify deviations to meet your individual needs and building type. These deviations would be mutually agreed upon and clearly stated in the engagement documents and final report. These deviations may exceed the assessment standards and include dismantling and operation of key systems like HVAC, maintenance suggestions, long term replacement schedules.
If your short term budget does not allow for any surprises during first year or two of ownership, you might want to consider a commercial property inspection which is more invasive and inclusive than an assessment.
Property Condition Inspections generally exceed the above standards by including dismantling and operating key systems such as furnaces, electric panels, hot water heaters, etc. The information gain by these invasive procedures will normally allow us to exclude documents and interviews called for in the ASTM E-2018-1 standards. If you would like a copy of the standard or a sample report, please give us a call. We have the flexibility to custom tailor your inspection for your project and situation.
The end result provides you with a more detailed picture of what kind of operating condition the major equipment is in and how maintenance (good or bad) has effected its life span.
The final report will list deficiencies to remedy them and a detailed report with representative photos if appropriate. Reports are generally computer generated and available 2-3 days after the inspection
For smaller projects requiring an immediate report, we have a comprehensive report that is a combination of narrative and check list.
We are able to apply a standard pricing formula for most typical buildings that we inspect making it quick and easy for us to provide you with a firm quote over the phone for most properties. Properties that do not follow this format can be quoted the same day if we receive a copy of the listing sheet or other additional information indicating the type of usage, size of the building, size and ampacity of the electric service, number of HVAC units, size of lot, etc.
Services exceeding ASTM Standards are available at extra charge. Examples would be dismantling and testing of HVAC units, furnaces, electric service panels, elevator equipment rooms, etc.
