The building evaluation team, consisting of Structure Tone, facility staff, real estate brokers, owner representatives, architects, engineers, and other consultants, work together to conduct detailed building evaluations and plan for the construction of new spaces. We assist site selection teams by inspecting prospective buildings to determine if properties can support present and future needs.
Building evaluation typically includes:
The team’s evaluations uncover conditions important to understand for long-term decisions, mitigation of unanticipated costs, and informed lease negotiations so that clients can realize the most for their money and a space that suits their needs.
The building evaluation team will work together to devise a Life Cycle and Sustainability Analysis (LCA) to evaluate building costs and uncover the full range of conditions that can impact a building throughout all phases of its useful life. LCA includes installed equipment to evaluate the direct and indirect cost burdens associated with a product, process, or activity. The assessments can translate into cost savings for tenants and/or owners.
Sustainability Evaluation: We assess for existing sustainability or adaptability to LEED® or eco-friendly measures, and to support environmental stewardship and efforts to reduce structures’ carbon footprint.
