Building Condition Assessment Services

A building condition assessment allows building owners and managers the ability to forecast the costs and maintenance of their buildings and begin prioritizing future projects. Strang’s multi-disciplinary team offers a broad understanding of architecture, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems across a variety of building types.

We have a proven track record of providing accurate, reliable, and comprehensive assessments of buildings ranging from a single-story office building to a multi-story historic property. The resulting database of a BCA will be a resource for future caretakers of the building, informing maintenance and capital renewal schedules as well as identifying growing, repeat, or chronic conditions. We are here to help guide you and your building into the future.

Our comprehensive building condition assessment services include:

What is a Building Condition Assessment?

The condition of your building now, directly impacts your facility management planning in terms of annual repairs, utility bills, building comfort, safety, and your future growth planning. A building condition assessment, also known as a facility condition assessment, is a comprehensive inspection, review, and report on your building and property.

This inspection looks at the site, building envelope, structural components, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and interior building components, and provides an overview on regulatory code compliance. It identifies short and long-term deficiencies and provides recommendations for repairs.  This is an invaluable and cost-effective development strategy for your facilities. All buildings age. It is important to understand the way your building is built, early on, in order to provide a proactive approach to the wear and tear of the world.

Office Security, Employee Safety
As engineers, architects, and designers, our role extends far beyond just blueprints. The comfort and safety of the building’s occupants is an essential consideration in design. Great office design will install measures to address potential work hazards and keep staff and data safe from the very beginning of the design process. In other words, prevention is the best policy.
The Beauty of Function
While earlier we focused primarily on low voltage design, now it’s time to dive deeper into its close relation: audio/visual (AV) design. AV design is the process of understanding the communication and entertainment needs and goals of a client and thoughtfully developing technology systems to address and meet them.
High Expectations from Low Voltage
When planning your new or renovated buildings, the subject of low voltage systems–the backbone of building technology–needs to occur right away rather than be left behind as an afterthought. Proper advanced planning can ensure your low-voltage systems help you operate at maximum levels of performance. And that’s more important now than ever.
