Equity Property Condition Assessment

Trust in Partner's team of diverse and highly experienced specialists for peace of mind in your investment.

An Equity Property Condition Report (PCR) is a tool to understand the physical condition of an asset. Partner Engineering and Science, Inc. will inspect the building, its systems, and associated site improvements to evaluate their condition and adequacy. Partner will dispatch an engineer, architect, or commercial building inspector along with requested subspecialists such as a structural engineer, a MEP engineer, an ADA specialist, a roof inspector, and/or an elevator specialist. Our one inspector, or the team of inspectors, will develop an understanding of the building's condition that is required for our clients to make an informed decision.

Our Equity Advisory Group was formed to assist select equity clients who demand more from their due diligence consultant. Our philosophy in the Equity Advisory Group is to do robust inspections for clients buying high-end real estate assets. Our Equity Advisory Group is staffed with registered engineers and registered architects. For clients who subscribe to the philosophy of the Equity Advisor Group, we develop a custom inspection proposal for each asset being acquired.

A Property Condition Report is a great tool to fairly negotiate the purchase price. Often commercial real estate assets are trading with significant deferred maintenance and/or the asset will require significant systems replacement in the near future. These reports are very detailed and address building systems, including the building site, building envelope, structural elements, interior elements, roofing systems, mechanical systems, plumbing, electrical, and elevators/escalators.  

A seismic evaluation, or a Seismic Probable Maximum Loss Assessment, is often included with our Property Condition Report in Seismic Zones 3 and 4.

Clients are increasingly asking for Energy Audits in conjunction with their Property Condition Reports. The Energy Audit will often identify opportunities to run the building more efficiently and increase net operating income.
