Commercial Business Inspection

Commercial Building Inspection (CBI)

Lougheed Consultants is a one-stop solution for commercial building inspections. We provide services for commercial property managers, owners, tenants, investors, and lenders. Our services are unmatched as we deliver results and reports by deploying the state of the art technology rapidly and efficiently.

Commercial properties require an inspection team that knows exactly what to look for. Compared to a residential property, there are many more variables to consider when inspecting a commercial property. This can be anything from the infrastructure of the commercial property to its size, which can be a lot bigger than a residential property. To do this efficiently and effectively, you need an inspection service that has the experience and the knowledge to accomplish this task.

At Lougheed Consultants, our inspectors have the training, experience, and knowledge to perfectly inspect the commercial site. The commercial property can be of any kind such as an office building, warehouse, industrial facility, retail store, and shop. From top to bottom, our inspectors will thoroughly go over every aspect of the property to give you the most detailed and accurate report. These include:

  • Roofing
  • Foundation
  • Drainage and Grading Around the Building
  • Framing and Building Envelope
  • Heating and Air Conditioning Systems
  • Plumbing
  • Vertical Transportation
  • Electrical Systems
  • Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems

Within 48 hours following the on-site inspection, the commercial building inspector will provide the client with an accurate, easy-to-read professional inspection report outlining the findings and presenting recommendations with the degree of urgency. The report will have annotated digital images to facilitate easy communication and guidance to the areas of concern.

We provide Property Condition Assessments (PCAs) and Commercial Building Inspections (CBIs). Each has a specific purpose. A Commercial Building Inspection is typically ordered when the buyer of a property wants to determine the condition of a property to discover any hidden costs associated with the purchase. A PCA is often ordered to satisfy the minimal standards of a lender or insurance company.

What Can a Commercial Building Inspector Do for You?

Investing in sound commercial real estate can be one of the smartest financial decisions a business owner makes, but be aware—structural problems invisible to the untrained eye can cause problems later if you don’t consult a trusted building inspector before purchasing. Lougheed Consultants in Indiana is comprised of registered, professional civil and environmental engineers who are uniquely qualified to assess the design and construction of commercial buildings.

Here are a few of the top reasons why you should hire a qualified building inspector:

Know Before You Buy: Experienced commercial building inspectors can assess the integrity of a property before you sign off on the dotted line. While a building may look like new, hidden faults, like an unstable foundation, can cause major issues down the line.

Become Compliant: Commercial buildings must meet strict building codes for the owner to avoid facing disciplinary action. A commercial building inspection will help tell you if all city, state, and federal guidelines are being met.

Protect Yourself From Liability: Unaddressed problems with a commercial building’s structure can put the building owner at risk of legal action if an accident or fire occurs down the line.

See The Possibilities: Want to know if the commercial property you’re looking at can be converted for a different use? A commercial building inspection from a qualified professional can help you decide if the site is adaptable to fit your vision.

Don’t take a gamble with your commercial investment. Call the professional civil engineers at Lougheed Consultants at 317-590-0521 to schedule your inspection service today, and protect the future of your property.

Beware of low-cost or partial inspections offered by others;
You could be throwing your money down the drain with undetected repairs or problems.
