Industrial Building Inspection
Industrial building inspections are performed on many commercial spaces, including manufacturing facilities (light assembly and heavy manufacturing), warehouses, flex spaces, commercial condominiums, distribution centers, art studios, showrooms, and similar buildings.
At LiteHouse Commercial, we understand that industrial buildings are dynamic.
They encompass many different types of production and storage. ln some cases, they operate 24 hours a day or need to accommodate a continuous manufacturing process.
This makes them subject to construction and renovation that may not always be sustainable, environmental issues, and unique equipment that may diminish the condition of a property.
What We Offer
We will provide you with an understanding of the physical condition of the building as a whole so that the building’s owners, tenants, and investors can ensure that the facility will accommodate the needs of any tenants without disruption and serve as a strong capital asset.
These findings will help you:
make sure that the building can accommodate and adapt to varying tenancies
understand how the building is holding up from a physical vantage point
address the issues that will impact the building from a safety and financial perspective
How To Prepare
Visit the Property
Go at different times of the day before the walk-through survey. This will give you a better feel of how the property operates and help you discover potential flaws and items of interest to mention to the inspector.
Obtain documents and records from the current owner, manager, or tenant. These may include lease agreements, Certificates of Occupancy, building and fire code violations, service contracts, repair invoices, and maintenance records.
Special Points of Interest
Discuss with us any special points of interest and details relevant to your lease or purchase transaction situation. With our custom-tailored commercial inspections, you will be armed with information to help you negotiate the most advantageous terms.
Outline Your Objectives
Review the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties, and note any work you want to be completed or excluded that deviates from the ComSOP. Inform us of; the timeframe and deadlines, planned renovations, and intended building use.
Interviews and Questionnaires
On the day of the walk-through survey, request that one party amongst the building's owner, manager, or tenant is present briefly. We provide additional options if your building's tenant is unavailable during our visit, including sending them our pre-inspection questionnaire via either phone call/email.
