Kinds of Commercial Inspections
Comprehensive Offerings for Every Requirement
Champia commercial inspections are thorough, complete and tailored to the unique needs of each client in the metro Atlanta, GA area. These Atlanta specific commercial inspections range from a simple exterior-only inspection to a complete ASTM E2018-01 inspection that includes price-to-remediate and lifespan information. Types of commercial inspections include:
Commercial Inspection Of Property
When buying a small building or an office within a larger building, you need an inspection that focuses only on issues that are relevant to the purchase. Our inspection and report are focused on issues that are unique to the property and include a complete survey of property conditions. This is ideal for a client comfortable in performing his or her own cost analysis for repairing or replacing defective items. Remember, a defective roof alone could cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
Property Condition Assessment – ASTM E2018.08
This is an extra service to Standard Commercial Inspection Of Property. The PCA requires the commercial inspector to develop estimates for current and future repair or replacement costs of the property components. This helps the client establish a pro forma cash flow regarding the building costs, excluding normal maintenance.
Commercial Property Inspection – Exterior Only
This commercial inspection delivers a quick analysis on a limited budget. It is also useful when tenants are not to be disturbed. The commercial inspection includes outside walls, property, roof, and all exterior components of electrical, heating, and air conditioning. Note: None of the property’s systems will be operated.
Commercial Inspection For Phase I Environmental Assessment
This is an extra service to our Standard Commercial Inspection Of Property, or it can be performed as a standalone service. Phase I Environmental Assessment is a review of the property, not the building. A Phase I Environmental Assessment in Atlanta will help to provide defense for an Atlanta commercial property buyer if any hazardous waste products are discovered after the transaction. Our Phase I Environmental Assessment in Atlanta consists of:
- Arial photo review
- Property walk around
- Determination of property’s original use and history
- Review of the EDR (Environmental Data Resources) database for buried tanks in the area
- Review of internal documents for hazardous waste disposal
Commercial Inspection of Fire Safety and Sprinkler
This commercial inspection includes the following:
- contacting local fire officials to determine the class of the building
- contracting with a fire sprinkler company to provide a full inspection
- certification of the system
- contracting with a fire alarm company to fully inspect and test the fire alarm systems
Municipal Code Inspection
A municipal code inspection is a commercial inspection that involves contacting the local government building department to review permits and any outstanding code violations against the building.
