Commercial Building Surveys

Building and property surveys are crucial undertakings in case the safety and habitability of buildings are to be upheld at all times. This is because it is such activities that enable property owners to predict and mitigate any possible issues promptly. 


Commercial buildings desperately require such surveys more than other pieces of property. This is for the sheer reason that they ordinarily subjected to a variety of regulatory legislation besides accommodating a huge number of occupants at any given time. 

Detailed Analysis

This entails the detailed analysis of the commercial building structure. It also looks into the maintenance requirements and the identification of any defects. The findings of these detailed analyses form the bedrock of subsequent repairs, modifications, and maintenance tasks. 

Legislation and Compliance

Commercial buildings are subject to a raft of legislation and regulatory regimes. Any violations of these regulations usually bring along some undesirable consequences.  Their suitability to accommodate users and occupiers safely and securely is also investigated under this consideration. 

Mechanical and Electrical Services Assessments 

The mechanical and electrical components of the buildings also matter. This is because they determine the suitability of the building to discharge its roles and satisfy its users and owners. Surveying also involves some investigation of the building’s mechanical and electrical installations. 

A commercial property’s quality depreciates with time. This may be due to such issues as structural faults, deterioration of certain parts and components, and negative externalities such as vandalism or natural disasters. 

While surveying the commercial property, the surveyors will give recommendations on the way forward, offer advisory on the feasibility of any given building project, assess cost implications, as well as the suitability of commercial property to their intended purposes.
