Property Condition Assessments

Understanding the condition of a structure, as well as the major building systems and components, can be critical to determining the economic viability of a commercial real estate transaction. Arkose Environmental partners with Intervest Engineering and Development, Inc. to provide Property condition assessments that meet the standards and requirements of ASTM Practice E 2018 and include the condition, life expectancy, and repair/replacement budgets for:

  • Grounds & Surface Lots Adjacent to the Building

    (Including Hot Water Heaters)

  • Electrical Services
  • Interior/Exterior Walls
  • Floors
  • Windows
  • HVAC Units
  • Heating Units

When possible, the property condition assessment report will include interviews with management and maintenance staff and/or providers of maintenance contracts on key equipment. A property condition assessment can be completed as a standalone assessment or in conjunction with the completion of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment.
