Due Diligence Industrial Building Inspection 

Due Diligence Inspection & Assessment Services Industrial Building & Property Inspection protocol includes: 

  • Structure – concrete, steel and wood components
  • Building envelope – roof and sidewalls including windows and doors
  • Interior finishes – floors, walls and ceilings
  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning
  • Electrical system and components
  • Plumbing system and fixtures
  • Fire Suppression and life safety systems 
  • Landscaping including walks, drives, parking areas and planted areas

  • Storm water drainage   

The initial concern to be addressed is current condition.  The inspector is called on to investigate, assess and report on the condition of all structural components and all operating systems.  The inspector also walks the property looking for condition of hardscape and landscape and accessibility and signs of hazardous conditions on the subject property and on adjoining properties.

.

 

 

Inspection Report

The secondary concern of the Inspection is to assist you in planning for operating costs by forecasting required structural and equipment maintenance routines and schedules.  The inspector will estimate remaining useful life of major components and discuss the two replacement strategies which are to replace items when they cease to be functional or to schedule replacement in advance.  The latter is helpful when failure of a building component would disrupt operations, damage equipment or inventory or make the building or a portion of the building uncomfortable or unfit for occupancy.

With information obtained on-site and research as necessary, the inspector documents the inspection
to accomplish the following objectives: 

  • Report on the condition and adequacy of the structural and operating systems 
  • Estimate the remainder of serviceable life expectancy 
  • Determine the need for immediate and near-term repair and replacement
  • Forecast maintenance and service routines
  • Recommended upgrades for reduced cost and improved efficiency.

Qualifications

Our Senior Inspector has university degrees in architecture and engineering, post-university training in industrial building inspection and over 27 years continuous experience in all disciplines.  While an architect, engineer and inspector will see a building in similar but different ways, Mr. Devine is uniquely qualified to view a building through all three perspectives.  You are assured of a thorough inspection and detailed report.  

We have 27 years experience inspecting all types of real estate: commercial and industrial buildings including apartment, condominium and other residential property and office, call center, warehouse, distribution, manufacturing, hotelmotel, restaurant and club, bank, retail, mall, plaza gas station and automotive service and more and we adjust our protocol to meet the specifics of each property type and to meet the requirements of investors, buyers, sellers, owners and property managers; real estate investment trusts; municipalities; attorneys; brokers, bankers and other lenders insurance companies. 

 

 

 

Flexibility

Our Due Diligence Industrial Building Protocol is designed to be flexible enough to provide you with all the information you need based on your purpose for the inspection and whether you plan own, manage or lease the property.

 

 

 

Due Diligence Environmental Assessment 

Whether purchasing or leasing,  the high cost and potentially devastating effects relating to environmental defect makes it critical to establish environmental condition prior to taking possession of a property.  The health and safety of employees and visitors constitutes a critical business risk and in case of a claim against you - whether meritorious or not - a recent Phase 1 Environmental Assessment report could be the cornerstone of an effective defense.

Environmental Liability Protections

Since the enactment of the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) in 1980, the commercial real estate industry has had to deal with the harsh reality that a current owner or operator of a contaminated property could be held responsible for cleanup of the contaminated property - regardless of whether it had anything to do with causing the contamination. Congress enacted the Superfund and Reauthorization Act (SARA) amendments to CERCLA in 1986 to provide liability protection to innocent landowners who unwittingly purchased contaminated property.

Commercial real estate purchasers can now also be insulated from liability by the provisions of the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA).  The act provides the following protections:  

  • Bona Fide Prospective Purchaser Protection 

  • Innocent Landowner Protection 

  • Contiguous Property Owner Protection. 

In order to qualify for any of these defenses commercial real estate purchases must perform what EPA calls All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI).  As a practical matter purchasers are not able to perform AAI functions as required by CERCLA and they transfer their responsible to an Environmental Professional who performs AAI as part of a complete Phase 1 Environmental Assessment.  Phase 1 Environmental Assessment can form the basis of renegotiation or cancellation of the purchase transaction and meets the standard of due diligence required to apply for future CERCLA environmental liability protection, should it ever become necessary to do so.  Note:  In some cases Phase 1 Environmental Assessment PLUS Vapor Encroachment Survey may both be required.

Pre-Lease and End of Lease Considerations

Tenants who will be required to the premises at lease end in substantially the same condition need to establish existing condition prior to signing a lease to protect their interests at lease end.  Also, even when the landlord or condo association is responsible for major systems it's important to address early any current or lease period issues that might cause damage to your equipment, fixtures or inventory or interfere with or interrupt your use of the property.

This same philosophy applies to environmental condition.  Based on the high cost and potentially devastating effects of environmental defect it is critical for both the leaser and lessee to establish environmental condition prior to entering into a lease and again at lease end for the safety of the business owner, employees and visitors.  In case of a claim against you whether it is meritorious or not a recent Phase 1 Environmental Assessment report could be the cornerstone of an effective defense.

Benefits to Sellers

Property owners routinely obtain Phase 1 Environmental Assessment prior to placing a property on the market.  The benefits of this strategy include the opportunity to obtain competitive bids to correct any defects and/or adjust the offering price to account for any deficiencies.  In addition, time delays caused by renegotiation and lender requirements and the possibility of a failed sale can all be avoided when environmental assessment is completed prior to the property being listed for sale.  In case of lease Ph establishes environmental condition of the property when the lessee arrives and the environmental condition lessee is required to leave the property in at end of lease.
