What is a Commercial Building Condition Report? 

When investing in a commercial property it is important to have an accurate idea of the condition of the building. A commercial building condition report is can be tailored to the specific needs of our clients. 

Similar to purchasing a home or investment property, as the buyer, you want to have a good idea of the condition of the property and any problems or potential problems that may be present. 

What does a Commercial Building Report include?

The 3 key areas for a commercial building inspection:

  1. Roofing – this is an area that can be the cause of many issues for the property owner, especially in stormy weather.  On some commercial properties the roof can be hard or impossible to access.  To combat this issue, ASBIR employs the use of a high definition drone to survey and photograph the roof from above to better assess any potential issues
  2. Exterior – Driveways, walkways, slabs, drainage, retaining walls and many other aspects of the exterior of a commercial building are important considerations
  3. Interior – showrooms, racking, stairways, fixtures, amenities and all other aspects of the interior are inspected by our experienced staff to ensure you get a clear idea of the condition.

Why Choose ASBIR? 

All our inspectors have decades of experience in building both commercial and residential buildings.  Their experience shows through in their thorough reports and deductive reasoning about problems or potential problems that may arise in the future.

We also use the latest in drone technology to survey all areas of the building, especially where access is limited or not possible.

Retail Centre Pre-Purchase Building and Pest Inspection Noosa

Considering purchasing a shopping centre precinct or commercial property? All Suburbs Building Inspection Reports (ASBIR) is a commercial building inspection specialist, providing you peace of mind. No job is too big for us in South East Queensland.

ASBIR recently undertook a pre-purchase building and pest inspection for a Noosa retail precinct comprising six tenancies.

While no major structural concerns were identified in this case, the inspection did unearth minor issues where repairs and maintenance would be required. This included leaking and rusted roof gutters and roof sheeting, deterioration to paintwork, blockwork cracking and some damage to flooring and countertops.

Furthermore, among the defects were out-of-date fire extinguisher inspections and missing smoke detectors which are critical for a commercial premise.

ASBIR Senior Inspector Fred Broekman said a pre-purchase building inspection was an essential step in the due diligence process, giving you a true snapshot of the extent of repairs or maintenance a property may require. 

“Regardless of whether you’re looking at buying small retail outlets or offices through to large shopping centres, warehouses, office blocks or an apartment building or motel, you should organise a qualified and independent building inspection from a reputable company.

“Before a contract settles it’s worth understanding the true condition of the property. An independent building inspection will identify significant issues and expose problems such as structural cracking, subsidence, leaks or dampness as well as maintenance and timber pest issues,” Fred said.  

“Having this additional knowledge can help in the decision making process or price negotiations. For many potential buyers they need to weigh up if they’re in a position to bear the costs of any future repairs or maintenance,” he said. 

ASBIR’s thorough reporting process means you will receive an individual report for each tenancy in a retail complex, with additional documentation for common or public spaces such as toilets, walkways, courtyards and gardens, if applicable.

In the market for a newly constructed shopping centre or commercial space? ASBIR also provides handover inspections for potential buyers. Contact us to find out how we can help give you peace of mind for your next commercial investment.

All Suburbs Building Inspections and Reports (ASBIR) is the leading provider of building inspections.

ASBIR Client Testimonial: 

Firstly, the professionalism shown by the inspector impressed us both in terms of the manner he conducted himself and the advice in general terms he provided on each aspect of the property.  Secondly that advice was critical in determining what potential for investment the property could provide.  We decided against the purchase in this instance and both feel relieved that we were able to get the best information to make that decision from your company.  We are truly grateful for that and will be recommending your company’s service to friends and family.

Deception Bay Commercial Building Inspection Identifies Termite Damage

Not sure if your commercial premises been treated for termites? Book a building and pest inspection with All Suburbs Building and Inspection Reports (ASBIR) for a complete 360 degree assessment of your property before it’s too late.   

ASBIR recently compiled a 132 page building and pest inspection report for a sports complex in Deception Bay, with urgent termite treatment recommended along with periodic maintenance to both internal and external structures and materials.  

According to ASBIR owner and senior inspector, Fred Broekman, commercial properties such as these tend to experience higher foot traffic and require more regular upkeep.  

“One prime example is pavers that need to be re-laid to prevent clients or customers tripping or injuring themselves as they enter or exit the building,” Fred said.   

Among the external assessment of the premises, as standard ASBIR closely inspects gutters and downpipes to ensure they are fully functional and connected to stormwater pipes to prevent damage to the building’s foundations, while also ensuring there is adequate drainage around the perimeter of the building.  

Other defects found in this report included major wet rot decay in the timber fencing, along with visible evidence of termite damage.  

“Mud tubes and damaged timbers synonymous with termites were identified in the fence posts, with the recommended course of action being urgent treatment by a qualified pest management company,” Fred said.  

But it’s not just the obvious signs of termite damage which are a concern for business owners.  

“It’s the concealed termite entry or pathways which prove most problematic, such as garden beds built directly alongside external walls,” he suggested.  

The beauty of a building and pest inspection is that ASBIR can refer you directly to other experts to fix such problems.  

“At this property we also noted major cracking to brickwork and recommended a structural engineer to further evaluate the damage to determine best course of action,” Fred said.  

Internally, minor ceiling cracking was noted and will require periodic maintenance with further waterproofing required in wet areas.  

“The internal roof system showed signs of missing sarking which may affect waterproofing, along with past water damage which should be monitored during future rain events.”

Commercial Building Inspection Maleny

Don’t get caught in the rain: avoid water damaged properties and wet rot decay with a pre-purchase commercial building inspection 

Found the perfect retail premises? All Suburbs Building Inspections and Reports (ASBIR) recommends a pre-purchase commercial building inspection to determine if there are any building defects, maintenance issues, safety hazards, or repair works required before you dive in and set up shop.

ASBIR recently undertook a thorough commercial building assessment on a small retail premise in Maleny which revealed significant water-related issues.

According to ASBIR Principal and senior building inspector, Fred Broekman a pre-purchase inspection as part of your due diligence process can give you valuable information about the status of the premises and negotiating power before you make your final decision to purchase the property.

“This recent building inspection of a commercial retail property on the Sunshine Coast hinterland identified a host of potential issues that could lead to a safety, and legal nightmare if left unattended”.

“The timber stairs showed signs of wet rot decay which can pose a safety hazard if not rectified, and the potential for litigation should someone get hurt. Not to mention the risk of lowering the property’s value if not rectified or adequately maintained,” Fred said.

The lesson for prospective buyers, but also commercial property owners, is that all timber structures should be assessed regularly. This includes external timber walls and structures such as decks, verandahs, pergolas, balconies, handrails, stairs, retaining walls, children’s play equipment, fences, garages, carports, sheds, gazebos and outbuildings.

“Annual building inspections and regular property maintenance can help avoid these problems before it’s too late – or costly to your business,” he said.

In this instance, ABSIR’s detailed 85+ page commercial building inspection report also revealed missing and broken downpipes on the retail property.

“While this may sound like a minor issue, the consequences are severe if left unattended,” Fred said.

According to Fred, rain water from unconnected downpipes running on the ground near buildings can undermine the building’s foundation and cause serious long-term problems to the structure if unresolved.

“Further to this, moisture constantly coming in contract with timbers will decay these structures, while also attracting termites with a moisture source so close to the building,” he said.

Our comprehensive building inspection report not only provides written and visual assessments of the current structural condition, but also outlines recommended action steps to rectify any issues or defects present.

Regardless of whether you are buying a new house or a commercial property, it’s critical that you go into the purchase and negotiation process with a full understanding of any existing building defects and maintenance that may be required down the track.

Buyer Beware: Proof that Pre-Purchase Commercial Building Inspections are Critical

All Suburbs Building Inspections and Reports (ASBIR) recently compiled a comprehensive commercial building inspection report on a small industrial factory in Caboolture, estimated to be 40-50 years old.

The top-to-toe pre-purchase report, conducted on behalf of the prospective buyer, included both internal and external condition assessments, and revealed a significant amount of rust throughout the property.

All structural materials and fittings were examined closely. This included external materials such as roof coverings, gutters and downpipes, brickwork, driveways, fences and gates; along with all internal walls, ceilings, windows, doors, woodwork, wet areas, ventilation, electrical and lighting, hot water systems and smoke detectors, plus additional industrial access points such as roller doors.

Our ASBIR report not only provides written and visual assessments of the current structural condition, but also outlines recommended action steps to rectify any issues or defects present.

In this instance, our detailed 60+ page commercial building inspection report provided the prospective purchaser an accurate picture of the current condition of the property – and ultimately gave them the upper-hand when negotiating a fair purchase price and in making their final decision to purchase the property.

Regardless of whether you are buying a new house or a commercial property, it’s critical that you go into the purchase and negotiation process with a full understanding of any existing building defects and maintenance that may be required down the track.

Dilapidation Reports or Pre-Construction Condition Inspections

dilapidation_reportAre you planning a development construction? Is someone planning construction near your property? When building works are being carried out it’s important that you assess the condition of your home and the surrounding properties with a Dilapidation Report or Pre-Construction Inspection. This simple but thorough report identifies the condition of surrounding properties prior to and after the completion of commercial or residential projects.

Who Will Benefit from a Dilapidation Report?

A dilapidation report is designed to measure the condition of buildings prior to construction. The reason why a report like this is vital is because if there is damage to a property nearby due to your building works, the owner of that property may well seek compensation from you. Similarly, if you know construction is being carried out nearby, you should get a building report on your home. By having a building report completed on your home, you can compare the condition of your property pre- and post-construction, and if there has been damage, you can seek compensation from the person or company responsible.

What Can a Dilapidation Report Assess?

There’s a range of structures and buildings that will benefit from a dilapidation report including:

  • Houses
  • Units
  • Townhouses
  • Sheds
  • Garages
  • Commercial buildings
  • Factories
  • Warehouses
  • Retail shops

Surrounding infrastructure is also included in the dilapidation report to all adjoining properties around the perimeter of the site, which may be adversely affected by the planned construction.

What Will a Dilapidation Report Find?

All substantial visible defects that exist prior to construction, or that may have occurred during construction, are recorded in the dilapidation report in the form of detailed notes and photographic evidence. We can perform a dilapidation report to check a range of building components and features including the current conditions of:

  • Roads
  • Fences
  • Footpaths
  • Curbs/channels
  • Driveways
  • Retaining walls
  • Boundary fences
  • External walls
  • Interior structures
  • Residential homes
  • Commercial structures

Common problems that may be noted include:

  • Cracking
  • Leaking
  • Material deterioration
  • Subsidence
  • Movement
  • Water seepage/damage
  • Concrete damage

Damage and defects can be caused by any kind of construction. It might be major renovations to existing structures, council-mandated road construction, or other infrastructure. There might be issues stemming from heavy equipment, piling, vibration, underground tunnelling, or excavation, or other traffic or persons onsite during construction.

We can even assess the ground and around the perimeter of the proposed site prior to building works commencing.

We Conduct Dilapidation Reports for Pre-Construction Condition of new commercial and residential buildings. We include inspections in the Caboolture, Morayfield, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Logan, Gold Coast and Ipswich areas.

When Undertaking New Construction

So you’re ready to start construction – but before anyone so much as fires up a cement mixer or raises a drill – consider the possibility that problems may arise in surrounding properties due to the building works.

Building works create vibrations, noise, ground movement and can cause structural changes due to foundation work and other building efforts. Before any work is done on your property or nearby, we strongly recommended that you consider having a dilapidation report done.

  1. Phone us or contact us online
  2. We assess your building or the surrounding properties
  3. Save yourself from potential legal action — or protect yourself from a lengthy and complicated process where you have to prove liability!

After Construction is Complete

When all of the work has been completed, a further dilapidation report can be carried out. This report will reveal any changes to buildings or structures so that if work needs to be done to fix anything, this can be carried out accurately.

Avoid Disputes and Claims

If there’s damage to your property and it was caused by a company or person building nearby or next door, you’d want that fixed up without having to foot the bill. Similarly, if another party is claiming that your construction damaged their home, you’d want some comprehensive evidence of your liability.

A pre-construction (dilapidation) report covers you against unsubstantiated claims and disputes.

A carefully documented and prepared dilapidation report with photographic evidence of both the pre- and post-construction condition of the building site and any surrounding property is vital for anyone seeking or undergoing building.

Any changes and variations that occur between start and finish reports will show straightforward evidence of any damage.

Documenting Pre-existing Conditions

  • A pre-construction dilapidation report will note existing conditions.
  • Your report will be agreed upon and signed by all affected parties before building work commences.
  • The party who orders the report keeps this as a record in the event of any issues arising from the construction.

You want a smooth building process – and a pre-construction building report can help you to make sure that any damage is dealt with quickly and efficiently.

Independent Dilapidation Inspection Reports by ASBIR

At All Suburbs Building Inspections and Reports, we are thorough. We understand what to look for, and we know what needs to be tracked and noted in regard to pre-existing damage. When it comes to new construction, it’s important to note any damage to the surrounding homes.

We carry out Dilapidation Inspection Reports (also sometimes called pre-construction reports or existing-condition reports) in all suburbs of Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, and Ipswich.
