PROPERTY CONDITION ASSESSMENTS

For more than 15 years, eScreenLogic has provided superior environmental consulting services to commercial real estate and banking communities by putting client interests first.

Commercial Building Inspections

We conduct property condition assessments (PCAs)—also known as Commercial Building Inspections or Commercial Property Inspections—when clients wish to know more about buildings and other manmade structures on a piece of real estate they are interested in purchasing or leasing, or when a current owner is planning on improving the property, needs to estimate maintenance costs, or simply wants to know more about the property. We also work with lenders, banks, and insurance companies.

Our PCAs are performed according to current ASTM Standard E2018 guidelines by an environmental professional who conducts a visual survey of the structures, and then subsequently analyzes gathered data. All of this data and analysis is compiled into what is known as a Property Condition Report (PCR).

PCAs generally cover 10 categories of concern:

  1. Building site problems, such as drainage, topography, paving and curving, etc.
  2. Foundation and framing issues
  3. Roofing
  4. Plumbing
  5. Electrical
  6. Windows and walls
  7. Hallways, stairways, and other transit areas
  8. HVAC
  9. Compliance with various codes and regulations, such as ADA, air quality, fire codes, etc.
  10. Environmental intrusion (such as air and moisture) and energy loss

It’s important to note that PCAs are not a substitute for other environmental reports, such as Environmental Site Assessments, as the scope of PCAs is restricted to common issues with construction and building maintenance, rather than overall environmental issues.

 

Limited Property Condition Assessment (LPCA)

We offer Limited Property Condition Assessments (LPCA) to clients who need structural evaluations for projects that are cost sensitive. The LPCA is essentially an abbreviated version of the PCA, but excludes assessments of care and upkeep, HVAC, and code and regulation compliance.  For clients who need some of these excluded categories, they may be added to an LPCA for an additional fee.
