Commercial Property Structural Evaluations
Whether you are an individual investor or are representing a corporation or trust, Level Engineering can provide you the clear, practical information you need to make a sound investment decision.
We work with investors to understand their goals and concerns and recommend services appropriate for their needs, ensuring a practical outcome.
For some investors, an inspection, analysis and verbal consultation is sufficient for a go-no go decision while other circumstances require services such as document review, a full written property condition assessment, repair recommendations and cost estimates. While many firms have a one-size fits all report, we feel that in some cases this increases costs while providing non-relevant work-product.

Structural vs General
A general building inspection offers an overall property evaluation. Inspectors analyze components such as plumbing, HVAC, roofing, and major systems. Their aim is to spot potential problems or worrisome areas that might need further investigation or upkeep.
For commercial properties, a structural inspection necessitates the expertise of qualified structural engineers. This type of inspection zeroes in on the building’s structural elements, aiming to assess the performance of the existing structure and identify any unintended damage caused by alterations from its original design.
Thorough evaluations of the foundation, walls, beams, columns, and load-bearing parts are carried out by structural engineers to gauge their stability and strength.
The primary goal of a structural inspection is twofold: first, to determine if the structure can handle intended loads and second, to ascertain if any adjustments or repairs have taken place, or are needed, to guarantee safe occupancy and proper commercial functionality.
These engineers assess the structure’s capacity to withstand expected loads and environmental forces like wind, snow, seismic activity, and also consider occupancy loads.
Guided by their findings, structural engineers provide suggestions for adjustments or repairs to ensure the building adheres to performance standards, maintains its value, and remains safe for occupation.
Engaging certified structural engineers for a comprehensive inspection report helps maintain the property’s value by thoroughly evaluating its structural soundness and load-bearing capabilities.
