His regional and national expertise compliments the wide variety of Partner projects and client types including national and local lending institutions, asset management/investment groups, commercial/retail developers, and commercial real estate professionals.

Mr. Taylor has over 25 years of experience in national commercial real estate due diligence consulting including Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Subsurface Soil/Soil Gas Investigations, Property Condition Assessments, Seismic Evaluations, Asbestos, Lead Paint, and Radon Surveys, ALTA Surveys, Geotechnical Investigations, Civil Engineering, MEP Special Inspections, Energy Evaluations, and Construction Monitoring.

Mr. Taylor has assessed and managed over 20,000 commercial real estate transactions throughout his professional career including several multi-million dollar asset portfolios consisting of a 29-site commercial office property acquisition, two 1,200-site cellular tower transactions, a 215-site regional shopping center vacancy evaluation, a 25-site regional grocery-store chain environmental/survey evaluation, a 16-site multifamily apartment building acquisition, a 10-site residential development acquisition, and 5-site Class A multi-specialized-scope building acquisition inspection. These transactions have included some or all of Partner’s core engineering due diligence services described above. He routinely manages national asset/developer clients to evaluate the environmental and structural risks associated with commercial/industrial properties prior to acquisition.  hese risks may be associated with past hazardous materials use (i.e., gasoline stations, dry cleaners) which require historical research combined with subsurface evaluations to assess for contamination that could devaluate the property or create a human health concern to occupants or construction workers; evaluate for asbestos, lead-based paint, and radon to determine the need for abatement or venting systems; evaluate the structural integrity of the building and assess for seismic retrofit; evaluate the roof, mechanical, electrical, plumbing systems (i.e., elevators, HVAC systems, sewer); evaluate for American Disabilities Act (ADA) deficiencies (i.e., ramps, railings, access); survey the property boundaries (i.e., ALTA Surveys); evaluate the subsurface conditions for construction suitability (i.e., Geotechnical Investigations); Civil Engineering/Design, and energy studies of the site building to meet with current requirements and systems efficiencies.
