Buying, owning, or managing any building involves a lot of risk: hazardous materials contamination, inability to accomplish desired improvements or conversions, and inadequate or inefficient structural and mechanical systems. Planning is also critical to maintaining and sustaining the health of your building and the efficiencies of your systems. Your goal, of course, is to minimize risk, and maximize return on your investment.
As with any worthwhile investment, buying a property should involve taking a careful look at what you're getting for your money. It simply does not make sense to invest significant dollars in new or existing property without an expert evaluation. A quality inspection helps you make better decisions. A more in-depth assessment with a focus on sustainability and energy efficiency will help you make good decisions that will positively affect the health of your building – and your bottom line – for years to come.
