Building Evaluation Services Columbus Ohio
We Evaluate Your Current Building And Tell You Potential Problems Before You Pay
Prior to purchasing an existing building or a parcel of land, our clients’ success is largely due to the fact that we get involved early in the process, which allows us to understand the project as it relates to the owners’ needs and expectations.
With our building construction evaluations we work with you as the owner to evaluate the overall building and site conditions before a deposit is placed. Adaptive reuse of existing buildings is becoming more and more prevalent because land is getting harder to find.
Our typical clients range from an owner/tenant relocating to a new site with minor changes needed to the building – to a national developer refurbishing an existing building or purchasing a site. This is where our expertise comes into play.
We can evaluate the current state of the structure to make you are aware of potential deficiencies that could increase development costs. We can prepare a conceptual budget to reposition a building or new site development work, which saves time and money.
We partner with the architectural and structural teams to develop a schematic design plan and work on budgets. Often times we take these projects on a design-build basis for the owners. In other cases, developers pass on opportunities because we have uncovered obstacles that will make the project economically unfeasible.
The pre-purchase building evaluation process is a collaborative effort between all parties to develop conceptual budgets and reduce risk; including the owner, architect, design-build consultants and structural engineers. Our goal is to eliminate surprises during construction and build the project as cost effectively as possible.
