Property Condition Assessments (PCAs)

Property Condition Assessments or PCAs, are typically performed during the due diligence phase of a development project involving commercial properties and buildings as part of a purchase, resale, refinance or lease opportunity for an owner or buyer of a property.

What Is a Property Condition Report?

A property condition report can reveal the value of a property and inform construction teams about the next steps for their development project. PCAs include assessment of above-ground, readily accessible systems, review of documentation and visual inspection of physical components of the property and accessible common areas. While some engineering issues may be visible on a property, many hide beneath the surface and need a professional team to assess them before construction begins.

In the project lifecycle, a construction site condition report is valuable for building an effective plan and creating a final project that recognizes performance needs and sustainability requirements.

Similarly, clients often request Facility Condition Assessments for their own planning and budgeting purposes outside of the transaction period. Owners of properties who plan to hold onto a property for a long time find the assessments useful for planning capital improvements.

A Building Condition Assessment Report With ECS

ECS performs PCAs following the ASTM E2018 guidelines, “Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments: Baseline Property Conditions Assessment Process.” We can customize reports to meet Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and client-specific requirements.

Since PCAs are often done during the due diligence phase of a project, they are often performed at the same time as a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA). The ECS team includes multidisciplinary professionals who can carry out a property condition survey as they work through a Phase I ESA.

As our team works through a construction site condition report, your team will have a single point of contact with one of our professionals. This arrangement keeps you informed about your project, so you can proceed with confidence.
