Commercial, industrial and residential building inspection
Commercial, industrial or residential building inspections are essential when buying a building, and sometimes even mandatory in order to obtain financing or refinancing from a financial institution. Our inspections consist of a thorough visual and tactile inspection by a structural engineer to determine the general condition of the building elements and identify deficiencies. The deficiencies or physical anomalies identified will then be communicated in a report prepared by an engineer member of the OIQ. The report also includes recommendations for corrective works of the present defects, recommended timeframes, and an estimate of the repair costs.

Our building inspection reports are tailored to the requirements of financial institutions for the purchase or refinancing of commercial or industrial buildings.
Building Condition Certificate for Condominium Unions
The building condition certificate is also essential for the maintenance of a building or a condominium. Our engineers conduct an inspection of the condition of the building components to determine what repairs or maintenance work needs to be done, along with recommended costs and recommended timeframes. Therefore, the building condition certificate can also be used in the contingency funds study for the condominium unions.
