BUILDING SCIENCES REPORTS

Building Condition Assessment (BCA)

Our BCA consists of onsite inspections and photo catalogue of building conditions and defects. The summary will include general observations of the building surroundings, as well as the interior and exterior of the building.

Property Condition Assessment (PCA)

Our PCA summarizes building deficiencies along with the current condition of the building. This will allow us to determine and estimate the budgetary costs needed to maintain the assets. 

The inspection will consist of an onsite review and photos catalogue of the building and its surroundings including; parking area, roof area, interior and exterior of the building as well as internal components such as HVAC and Plumbing.
