Partner has invested in a state of the art infrared camera to provide diagnostic inspections during PCAs. The Infrared imaging is used to assist in the determination of issues associated with:

  • Moisture intrusion in roofing systems, wall assemblies, etc.
  • Location of leakage of piping systems within wall and ceiling assemblies.
  • Location of wet insulation in roof and wall assemblies.
  • Air infiltration through walls, doors and windows.
  • Identification of poor insulation, failed sealants, leaky ductwork, etc.
  • Location of abnormal temperature levels in mechanical equipment.
  • Location of heat build-up due to shorted electrical circuits, particularly aluminum wiring.

Partner’s trained personnel can develop a scope-of-work with appropriate fees at a client's request. Such additional work can be added to a proposed Property Condition Report or as a stand-alone report.


Partner conducts thousands of equity level assessments, including Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments, Property Condition Assessments, ALTA Surveys, and Probable Maximum Loss Reports, every year for all types of investor clients.

Partner recently served as the Environmental Consultant to a nationally based investment advisor, completing a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment and Asbestos Survey at a high-rise commercial office building on Rockefeller Plaza in New York City for the company. The assessment and survey was conducted on the 34-story high-rise, having over 650,000 sq ft and performed on an expedited basis for strategic investment by the company.
