Building Condition Assessments
With today’s ever-tightening budgets, facility managers need to do more with less. Pinchin can give you the facts on the most cost-effective strategy to manage building maintenance today and for the future. A Pinchin Building Condition Assessment (BCA) includes:
Inspection of building envelope, interior finishes, mechanical and electrical systems, and accessible structural components
Assessment of fire and life safety systems and exterior site features such as walkways, parking, and landscaping
Written and photographic documentation of each component together with observed deficiencies
Review of general documentation on repair and maintenance histories
Interviews with facilities and maintenance staff
A formal written report including observed deficiencies, estimated lifespan of building elements and systems, and a list of recommendations for repair or replacement with estimated costs.
Facility condition index benchmarking and funding considerations
A BCA is a smart way to maximize building life and reduce repair and maintenance costs.
Pinchin’s BCA services can be enhanced with a Reserve Fund Study, to help our clients develop long-term capital budget planning of expenditures for major repairs or replacements of building components and equipment.
