Building inspections & Reporting

Many different types of reports may be required for buildings over the years. These include, but are not limited to, Turnover Reports, Condition Assessments, Conversion Reports, Reserve Studies, and 40-year Building Recertifications. If you require one of these, give us a call and we will provide a quote.

Archetype begins with evaluating existing conditions and building plans. From there we  provide professional documentation and reports used for:

  • Due diligence
  • Statutory requirements
  • Budgeting of improvements
  • Solving problems

Archetype performs detective work by

  • Skilled site observations
  • Comparison of existing design drawings to actual construction
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Aerial photography and video
  • Forensic exploratory investigations of as-built conditions, if necessary.

The investigation work forms the basis to understand and report on whether problems are due to design, construction, normal age, storm, or other causes. Repair protocols, cost estimates, and construction administration of improvements can be provided.

We have extensive experience in providing expert witness reporting and testimony.
