A baseline commercial property inspection (referred to as a Property Condition Assessment or PCA by the standards set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials) relies on a walk-through survey, document review, and interviews to determine the property's condition - all performed by a professional AmeriSpec commercial property inspector. The results of the PCA are reported in a Property Condition Report (PCR). The report includes information obtained from the PCA.
This information assists owners and buyers in understanding operation and maintenance required and also helps provide confidence to prospective investors.
The scope of the inspection needed and the specific areas to be inspected are based on various factors. Age, occupancy and type of construction are considered when determining how the property will be inspected and the performance criteria needed to complete a quality inspection. Inspections can range from a visual examination of the property, to a comprehensive inspection of all the building's technical components.
Depending on the type of property and needs of the client, inspections may require specialists, consultants or the TEAM approach (see below).
The TEAM (Technical Experts and Management) approach allows specialists and/or consultants to assist us in the commercial inspection process by providing expertise in relevant areas.
