As our client we are working for YOU. That means we want to provide you with the best possible service.
Commercial properties come in all shapes and sizes, and what is necessary to check in a warehouse may not be the same for a child care centre. Our commercial options vary slightly from residential services as they are specific to the type of building being inspected. All ASBIR clients are encouraged to attend the commercial building inspection with the inspector. This provides an opportunity to receive a verbal report from the inspector prior to receiving the written report.
If you were unavailable to attend the inspection, you can also request a call from the commercial building inspector if you have any questions.
The types of inspection reports completed for commercial structures are like those for other buildings, such as building and pest reports, maintenance reports and handover reports. However, the inspection itself is a little different in that it is specific to the type of commercial building being inspected.
All ASBIR reports comply with relevant Australian Building Codes and Standards.
The condition and operation of electrical components, installations and appliance are not included as part of a pre-purchase building inspection standard or scope of works. However, if requested we can arrange for an electrical installation inspection to be carried out by a licensed electrician at the time of your commercial building inspection by ASBIR.
There are different types of electrical inspections, some of these require the power to the property to be turned off for a brief period. The most requested electrical inspection is the Basic Visual Inspection, which does not require the power to be turned off.
Please let us know if you would like to have an Electrical Installation Report included with your commercial building inspection by ASBIR. We can include this in our fee proposal and arrange on your behalf.

If you are planning to undertake any new construction which is near or adjacent to other properties, or your property is adjoining any planned development or construction, you will need to consider the possibility that problems may arise in surrounding properties due to the building works.
A Dilapidation Report documents pre-existing condition of buildings before any new construction is commenced so that there is a photographic record of any defects or other issues that existed prior to building works commencing, and therefore could not have been caused by the construction works on the property.
Before you begin your new business venture, allow our team of professionals to give you clarity of exactly what you are buying into. With the proper research and a detailed report from an experienced and independent party, you’ll not only know what to expect once you move in and begin business, you’ll ensure you’re paying a reasonable price for the property.
Your report becomes a great tool during negotiations, can help you avoid properties that are not right for your needs or plan for the short and long term in regards to any repairs and ongoing maintenance you might need.
