Retail Services Building


HABITEC Home and Building Inspections, LLC, offers commercial building inspections for retail services buildings like the ones in the projects described below. These services consist of a Property Condition Assessment as described in ASTM Standard E 2018, modified, and Environmental Services for radon testing, mold assessment and water quality analysis.

The building shown was inspected completely to include interior, exterior, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, structural, and Americans with Disability Act (ADA) compliance. Environmental Services were also performed to include a radon test and mold assessment. The building housed several institutions including a men's clothing store, a labor distribution center and a church.

The exterior consisted of concrete block and brick veneer. The roof was inspected by accessing the roof and walking the roof in a systematic grid. The parking lot was inspected for condition, size and number of parking spaces, and ADA compliance.

The interior walls consisted of concrete block and traditional drywall. The interior ceilings consisted of steel, concrete or dropped ceiling tiles.

The electrical system consisted of a 3 phase system introduced to the building by exterior surface and roof mounted masts. Approximately 8 service panels distributed the electricity.

An Americans with Disabilities Act Tier II survey was completed on the exterior and interior of the building and the parking lot. Environmental Services included a radon test and a limited Mold Assessment. The mold assessment included the entire building and resulted in a limited number of samples taken and forwarded for laboratory analysis.

A written Property Condition Report was forwarded to the Client within 72 hours of the completion of the on-site inspection. The report was sent electronically and a printed and bound copy was forwarded by courier. 
Ron Rittiner was the Inspector of Record for this project. He was assisted by Richard Acree.
