What are BCAs?
AEL environment is pleased to offer Building Condition Assessments (BCAs) for our clients with commercial properties. BCAs include the inspection of key features and components of a structure including the building envelope, foundation, roof, plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems. The assessment is provided as a detailed report of a building’s deficiencies and areas of potential concern, and lists required maintenance and improvements with associated costs.

Why Does Your Property Need a BCA?
Building Condition Assessments offer significant liability protection for commercial building owners and operators. Assessing the condition of a building helps identify potential safety hazards or structural deficiencies. By addressing these issues proactively, you can mitigate risks and help ensure the safety of occupants and visitors.
They are often required as a condition of purchase financing, sale, or refinancing a commercial property. A BCA provides valuable insights into the condition of the building, which helps both buyers and sellers make informed decisions, negotiate terms, and assess the true value of the property.
Additionally, many site owners and operators regularly obtain BCAs to monitor the impact of their activities on a commercial building and plan maintenance accordingly. This allows for effective planning and budgeting as part of a long-term asset management strategy.
Finally, certain buildings are subject to specific regulations and compliance standards. A Building Condition Assessment can help ensure that a property meets these requirements, avoiding legal or regulatory issues.
Ultimately, the value of a Building Condition Assessment is that it offers a comprehensive understanding of a building’s condition, enabling proactive maintenance, risk mitigation, and informed decision-making regarding the property, whether you plan to sell or not.
