When you are considering the purchase of a commercial building or property, an inspection is very important to make sure you have full knowledge of that building. Commercial inspections are done similar to home inspections, but by a professional with experience in commercial buildings.
What Is a Commercial Inspection?
A commercial property inspection involves a licensed inspector performing a thorough on-site examination of the building and collecting necessary information on the property. The commercial building inspector will also collect samples to do an analysis of any potential issues with the building. The commercial building inspector’s job is to make educated observations, conduct research, perform analysis with their team, and to report their findings back to you.
The commercial inspection is designed to analyze the building based on potential return on investment for you, the owner or the prospective owner. The report contains detailed information about the structure and safety of the building and if it is a wise investment in the long term.
Who Performs a Commercial Building Inspection?
A commercial building inspection is performed by a licensed professional with experienced training in commercial properties. This person understands that commercial buildings are a business asset, and an income generator for the owner.
Depending on the scope of the commercial building being assessed, the inspector may bring in additional team members with specialty knowledge. These team members will have expertise in certain areas and will benefit the building’s owner or prospective owner with that knowledge. This team of consultants may include:
- a licensed engineer
- an electrician
- a plumber with a commercial building background
- HVAC specialist
- a commercial kitchen facilities expert
A commercial inspector’s assessment will focus on the building’s major systems and most important components. This assessment includes a thorough review of:
- heating systems
- cooling systems
- proper ventilation
- electrical system
- exterior elements
- interior and exterior fixtures
- roofing and roof surface drainage
- any balconies, decks, or attached patios
- parking areas, parking structures, sidewalks, stairs, and any other access points that may have barrier issues
- kitchen and other cooking areas
- doors and windows
- general building topography
In addition to these items, a commercial building inspection will include any other areas that are within the building or property.
When Does Someone Need a Commercial Inspection?
A commercial inspection is important when you are considering buying or leasing a commercial property. As the owner, landlord, or property manager, you will hold liability for that building’s safety. This liability will be extended to employees, customers, occupants, and building visitors. If there is any chance there are issues that need to be handled prior to taking over the commercial building, it is your job to make sure you and your team are aware of them. It is important to take the next steps to make sure the building is a safe and healthy environment for those who go inside the building.
Additionally, if you already own or manage commercial properties, it is a good idea to get a regular commercial inspection every 3 to 5 years. Just like a home, commercial buildings undergo natural elements that can lead to “wear and tear.” The more information you can gain about potential issues, the better place you will be in to address them before they become major repairs.
