Commercial Property Condition Assessments

Based on our depth of experience, we evaluate the full spectrum of commercial facilities including retail, office, mixed-use, hospitality, educational, and industrial properties. Our inspections follow a streamlined approach that starts with a custom proposal based on your needs. Once we have discussed your long-term strategy for the property, we can generate a clear scope of work, conduct a thorough on-site inspection of both the facility and available documents, and create a final, user-friendly report.
