What Is A
Commercial Building Inspection?
Commercial Building Inspections are our specialty. Before investing in a commercial asset, trust us to identify any unexpected cost that could affect your investment.
A commercial code inspection is an objective examination of your commercial building and site. A pre-purchase inspection allows the buyer to get a complete understanding of the overall condition of the property before purchase. This inspection doesn’t establish the value of the property, but identifies any potential threat to investment, like repairs. The goal of this inspection is to ensure you’re buying a problem-free property that is up-to-code. An investor with a pre-purchase commercial building code inspection done by GreenWorks is savvy enough to know that our checks will save them from major unexpected expenses after purchasing.
Complete Your Option Period For Your Commercial Inspections
A pre-purchase commercial real estate inspection provides the first significant step in establishing assets, liabilities and potential liabilities. Part of the due diligence process is identifying these liabilities. Whether you’re investing in an expansive commercial property or a small finish-out building, an inspection is crucial for finding repairs and costly maintenance items. These inspections also include evaluation of any damage the structure may have incurred, like earthquake, flood or fire damages. A comprehensive pre-purchase inspection will complete your due diligence process so you can make an informed decision regarding your investment.
Residential VS. Commercial
Building Code Inspection
There is a big difference between residential and commercial property inspections. There are many variables to consider, like infrastructure, size, parking and location. All commercial site inspections are performed in general conformance with the scope and limitations as set forth by ASTM E2018-08 Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments: Baseline Property Condition Assessment Process. All inspections are performed utilizing methods and procedures consistent with good commercial or customary practices designed to conform to acceptable industry standards. With GreenWorks, you will receive a comprehensive, easy-to-read, professional inspection report explaining the findings and any recommendations the inspector has.

Protect Yourself From Unexpected Costs
When investing in a commercial property, there is a great deal of money on the line. By researching the property’s past, you can identify any issues that may impact you in the future.
SOME FACTORS TO CONSIDER WOULD BE:
- Inadequate Design
- Building Code Violations
- Poor Material Quality or Workmanship
- Improper Maintenance throughout the life of the building
Weather-related issues are also important factors to consider. If the building has suffered an earthquake, flooding, or wind damage, it’s crucial to receive a thorough inspection before purchasing. Although these factors can be “red flags,” it is smart to get an inspection regardless if these factors are valid for your property. There are underlying issues that can exist even in newer buildings with seemingly high-quality materials and artistry.
