What is a Building Survey?

Understanding the condition and potential issues within a building is essential for effective management and maintenance. A building survey provides this critical insight.

A building survey is a detailed inspection of a property’s condition, identifying defects and areas that require maintenance or improvement. These as-built surveys are essential for anyone looking to buy, sell, or maintain a property, offering a thorough understanding of the building’s current state and future needs. A thorough building survey provides a comprehensive assessment of all aspects of a property, ensuring every component is meticulously evaluated. This includes a detailed examination of roofs, walls, floors, windows, doors, chimneys, cellars, garages, and outbuildings. It also includes an inspection of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems to ensure they meet the client’s purposes for the facility.

By identifying defects, maintenance issues, and critical structural concerns, the survey lays the foundation for informed design and reliable information models that can be used throughout the building’s lifespan. A building survey aims to identify existing issues and potential future problems, providing property owners with a clear and detailed report to guide maintenance and improvement efforts.

Crow Engineering offers building surveys focused on the specific needs of our clients including the physical and structural condition of buildings and the potential to meet production requirements. Our facility evaluations provide unique insights into different aspects of the building’s performance and integrity.

Building Surveys & Evaluations Key Components

Building surveys not only address visible elements but also evaluate the structural integrity of the property, identifying any issues that might affect stability. This holistic approach ensures that property owners receive a complete understanding of their building’s condition, helping them make informed decisions about maintenance, renovations, and future investments.

The thoroughness of the survey provides peace of mind, knowing that every potential problem has been identified and documented, paving the way for effective maintenance and long-term planning. The key components of a thorough building evaluation can be separated into the following categories:

  • Structural Systems: Assessing the integrity and condition of a building’s framework.
  • Building Envelope: Evaluating the condition of exterior walls, roofing, and other critical barriers.
  • Interior Building Components: Inspecting interior elements like floors, ceilings, and walls.

Crow Engineering’s building evaluations also include detailed site examinations, accurate floor plans, sections and elevations, contextual elevations, and Building Information Modeling (BIM). Our building survey services include internal area calculations and detailed 3D data collection.

When Might a Building Survey Be Needed?

Whether you have a single-tenant space to remodel or a complex commercial project with multiple locations, building surveys are crucial. These evaluations are indispensable across various industries, including industrial, manufacturing, forestry, food and beverage, cold storage, agriculture, chemical, construction, energy, distribution facilities, and more.
