Frequently Asked Questions
Property Condition Assessments (PCA), also called Commercial Building Inspections, is an element of the due diligence process when assessing commercial real estate. This type of assessment is essential for clients looking to buy, finance, or lease real estate. This service is a way to specify the state of the property in question. Evaluation of commercial real estate assets is based on a thorough inspection of the condition and functionality of the building and its infrastructure to determine its suitability and appropriateness for intended functions.
Tenant improvement (TI) contractor performs customized alterations to the existing building structure to suit the needs of a particular tenant better. Businesses work with owners to modify rental space buildings, usually as part of the lease agreement, to adapt and configure the space differently. The alterations can include floors, walls, ceilings, lightning, and other elements. TI contracting is usually part of the lease negotiation, so these are the most common situations that require contacting a tenant improvement contractor.
Building envelope protects the structure and everything inside it from outside elements. Therefore, it plays a crucial role in a building’s energy efficiency. Building envelope consultants’ job is to prevent problems like water leakage or condensation. If that happens, an investigation is needed to identify the cause of the problem and determine corrective actions.
Performance testing can be requested by contractors, architects, and building owners. The main goal is to lower the risk of potential issues or correct issues before they become more costly.
Services provided by building enclosure consultants include various areas of expertise:
- Waterproofing consulting services
- Water penetration and leakage testing
- Hygrothermal performance analysis
- Condensation investigation
- Air leakage Investigation
- Component and system testing
- Mold and other microbial contamination analysis
The job of a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) is to assess existing or potential hazards. Those who hold the credential can help protect workers’ and the public’s health by evaluating, controlling, and anticipating a wide range of physical, chemical, and biological hazards.
Industrial hygienists consulting firms perform such an analysis. They are indispensable when it comes to maintaining a safe and sustainable building site by training staff and preventing safety and health hazards from occurring. If your business deals with potential hazards or the building you work in is showing signs of them (such as workers feeling unwell), a CIH can identify risks before they occur or confirm their existence, helping you ensure your business runs smoothly.
