Level 1 Condition Assessment:
A visual inspection-based assessment resulting in a letter report to the client describing global findings and/or concerns. This phase evaluation is useful if the client wants general feedback, or if the client wants to start with a first step assessment that can provide a clearer scope defining the parameters of a future assessment.
Level 2 Condition Assessment:
Using visual inspection with some Non-& Minimally Invasive investigation into the building. This level of assessment is significantly more comprehensive, providing clear guidance on next steps and recommendations. The final deliverable is a reviewed report summarizing what was found, how our evaluation was done, and what our end recommendations are. For the majority of projects, a Level 2 Condition Assessment will provide a strong basis from which to move onto design.
Level 3 Condition Assessment:
Very detailed building diagnostics can provide important information for addressing complex problems. Their value stems from their ability to greatly reduce construction work in major buildings by having a better understanding of the issues at hand. Tools and deliverables will vary case by case.
