Facility Assessment & Investigation
We conduct property condition assessments and investigations across North America to provide owners and facility managers with critical information to make decisions. These reviews are done as part of the due diligence process, for refinancing purposes or to investigate building condition concerns.
Our goal is to identify potential ownership risks and liabilities early in the due diligence period or with investigations to identify building envelope issues and provide recommendations for solutions to improve building performance. Our market-focused team can promptly mobilize to review the building envelope, structural, mechanical, electrical, and life safety systems.
Our Facility Condition Assessment Reports
Our reports are prepared in general conformance with ASTM E-2018-08. Report formats are customized based on the complexity of the property to allow efficient review by clients in the typically accelerated schedules. Executive summaries, spreadsheets of anticipated costs and teleconferences enable us to convey considerable information quickly.
Additional detailed reviews including seismic analysis and testing are also available if needed. Large portfolio condition assessment projects require a different level of organization and preparation. Our geographical reach, team size and ability to mobilize has enabled us to deliver extremely large and complex portfolio reviews of properties across Canada and the US on schedule without sacrificing the thoroughness of the review and quality of deliverables.
Our experienced and qualified teams, through the use of physical testing, diagnose building envelope defects such as water infiltration, air leakage and thermal discomfort; identify the cause; and provide practical working solutions.
