Building Condition and Assessment Services
The purpose of a Building Condition and Assessment Survey is to observe and report on the physical condition of the property and to provide professional recommendations regarding future issues including financial risk or liability to the client.
Major structural, electrical, plumbing and HVAC components of each structure, as well as site improvements, are carefully examined for condition, status of completion, general code conformance, life cycle costs, sufficiency for their intended use, and extent of defects. Leeper’s Building Services team interviews site personnel, performs document reviews and conducts walk-through surveys noting the physical condition of the building systems and components of a Building Condition and Assessment report.
Systems surveyed will in a Property Condition Assessment include the following:
- Site and Grounds - pavement, curbs, loading docks, walks, landscaping, irrigation, site drainage, exterior lighting, walls, fencing/railings, signage and exterior amenities.
- Structural Systems - Foundations and structural framing of walls, columns, intermediate floors and roofs.
- Building Envelope - Roofing systems, exterior finishes, stairs and steps, exterior doors and windows.
- Interior Building Components - Interior finishes of common areas and tenant areas. Condition of soft goods will not be assessed.
- Mechanical Systems - Property-owned electrical, heating ventilation/ air conditioning, plumbing and conveyance systems.
