The commercial inspector may identify deficiencies related to: 

Poor installation and workmanship

Inadequate design for the intended use

Deferred maintenance

Environmental damage or risks

Systems near the end of their service life

This is a breakdown of what Beckstead Commercial will accomplish:

The commercial inspector will comply with the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties (ComSOP) https://ccpia.org/standards-of-practice/ the industry-accepted commercial inspection guidelines, and a proven process and system. As a baseline, the assessment includes the following services:

1) Walk-through survey. This is the portion of the service where the inspector conducts a thorough on-site visual examination of the property’s physical condition. The assessment is focused on the building’s critical systems and components. Depending on the scope of the project, the commercial inspector may use a team of specialty consultants who provide expertise in relevant areas during the walk-through survey.

2) Document procurement and review. For this portion of the service, the commercial inspector requests and reviews documents and records about the property. Some relevant documents may include lease agreements, Certificates of Occupancy, repair invoices, and maintenance records. The commercial inspector will also interview person(s) with the most knowledge about the condition of the building. Many potential deficiencies can be identified about a building this way, as well as in reviewing its history.

3) Inspection report. The final product of a commercial property inspection is the written report. It will contain concise details from the walk-through survey, documents procured, the results of interviews conducted, and any other third-party reports ordered as part of the commercial property inspection. The inspection report will basically include a detailed summary of the inspector’s findings. This will provide the client with an inventory of the building’s major systems and components, and an evaluation of their functional and physical condition. These findings will highlight the property’s strengths and potential deficiencies, along with deferred maintenance issues. The inspection report can be used to understand and address the issues that will impact the building from a physical standpoint and financial perspective, as well as the health and safety of the building’s occupants.

Schedule a Commercial Property Inspection. Every inspection and subsequent report will be different based on the type of property and its use, the Scope of Work for the inspection, and even the inspector, so previous inspection reports should not be relied upon as an accurate record of its current condition.
