Engineered Building Survey

We understand commercial real estate investors do not want to be deluged with crowded pages of triviality in a report – they want information with horsepower.  Investors want information they can use to make a deal happen.  Information that will control expenses, avoid headaches and stimulate growth.

With this in mind, we offer an “Engineered Building Survey” (EBS).  The EBS is a cost-effective service that gives investors the power of experience and engineering expertise on a building site for a preliminary examination of property.

The basic element of a Team Engineering EBSTM have been earned through years of study and collaboration with long-time real estate investor colleagues.  The horsepower punches in from the additional information we include in the service.  Every report receives a projection of capital expenditures.  The projections identify capital expenditures costs and sets a general guideline forecast for the timing of your expenditures.  We can also drill down on specific issues, if necessary.  We can bring in independent experts to enhance the details that you want to know.   Our independent experts can closely examine specific issues like HVAC, Structure, Fire Protection, Septic, Electrical and all facets of the building envelope.

A Cost-Effective Alternative to Property Condition Assessments

Saved us from a possible money pit!

Brian Hansen came out to look at a house I almost bought.  His knowledge and written account of what he saw showed my wife and I that maybe this was not the house for us.  After Brian inspected the foundation on short notice, he sent us a report within a... Read More

They thoroughly analyzed the problem and suggested solutions. They then helped... Read More
