Commercial or Multi Residential
A commercial property includes any property that is zoned commercial or a multi family building with more than four units. The inspection is a Property Condition Assessment (PCA) based on the ASTM E2018-15 Commercial Standards, and is a walk-through survey to identify and communicate physical deficiencies.
Unlike Home Inspections, there are no regulations in BC that requires a commercial inspector to have training, so when you hire an inspector, consider ensuring they follow the Standard. The ASTM standard is an American Standard used across Canada. The Standard is considered detailed enough that we don’t need our own in Canada.
Commercial inspections include a walk-through survey to identify and communicate physical deficiencies to the Site, Structural Frame and Building Envelope, Roofing, Plumbing, Heating, Air Condition and Ventilation, Electrical, Vertical Transportation, Life Safety/Fire Protection, and Interior Elements.
