With a Property Condition Assessment (PCA) from Rimkus, owners can be confident that they have the necessary due diligence information for purchasing or leasing a property. To begin, we research, locate and review available as-built drawings to determine if potential shortcomings exist in the design or detailing of the property.

To address any potential issues that might require repair or replacement, we examine trouble-prone areas such as cladding, roofing, windows or exterior doors, which may be prone to moisture intrusion, site grading and drainage, or other areas where construction defects commonly occur. We examine all mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems to make certain that everything is functioning as intended.We also analyze structural systems to determine their adequacy for the intended use, and include any proposed modifications to the load bearing conditions.

On-Site Reviews & Condition Reports

After all documentation is reviewed, the property is visually inspected using non-destructive testing methods such as thermal imaging or other technology. Following the inspection, a report is generated on the physical condition of the property. Recommendations regarding future issues related to the maintainability of the property as well as life cycle cost analyses are also frequently included in the report.

Our critical investigation areas in a PCA can include some or all of the following:

  • Facades
  • Building Envelopes
  • ADA Compliance
  • Code Compliance
  • Mechanical, Electrical, & Plumbing systems (MEP)
  • Structural
  • Civil/Site Grading and Drainage
