Property Condition Assessments (PCA)
A Property Condition Assessment (PCA) is an inspection and evaluation of a building and site features, and is completed in general conformance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Practice E2018-08. The PCA generally involves an inspection of the building envelope (roof, walls, window systems, doors), interior finishes, the electrical/mechanical systems, accessible structural components, exterior site features (i.e., walkways, roadways, parking, landscaping, etc.) and an assessment of the fire/life safety systems.

PCAs are usually conducted at the time of building purchase, or for due diligence, risk management, or to support re-financing. PCA’s are also performed for asset management purposes or renewal planning, and is an excellent tool to extend building life and reduce repair and maintenance costs. The S2S Environmental PCA report documents the observed deficiencies at a property including photographs as well as a summary of recommendations for repair/replacement with associated estimated costs over the analysis period. S2S Environmental has extensive experience working with the financial industry and understand their requirements for PCAs for property financing purposes.

S2S Environmental also conducts Reserve Fund Studies to develop long term capital budget planning of expenditures for major repairs or replacement of building components and equipment.
