What are Condition Assessments?

One of the services that we offer here at Belanger Engineering is building condition assessments. In this article, we’ll be providing more information about what these assessments are, what their purpose is, and what you can expect them to include.

  • What They Are. Conveniently, building conditions assessments are pretty much exactly what they sound like: an evaluation of a structure and its component systems. In a condition assessment, our team at Belanger Engineering will inspect every part of your building and summarize our findings into a report for you.
  • What They’re For. Building condition assessments can be done for a number of reasons. For instance, it’s generally standard to have a condition assessment performed as part of a commercial real estate transaction so that the buyer can get a clearer picture of the state of the property before they commit to the purchase. Another common reason to get an assessment is to help secure funding for renovations.
  • What to Expect. When you enlist our team at Belanger Engineering to perform condition assessments, you can expect our technicians to thoroughly inspect your property and all its systems, including the plumbing, the wiring, the insulation, the roof, etc. Once we’ve gathered that data, we’ll use it to identify any system deficiencies or replacement needs, determine the remaining useful life of various components, and create a prioritized list of repairs.
