Large corporations, real estate investment trusts, and individual investors have different perspectives, different portfolios, and different investment goals. Some purchase commercial buildings regularly, others only occasionally. Criterium-Bennett Engineers understands these differences. We can meet investors wherever they are and provide the entire range of advice and assistance they need, from the sophisticated analysis experienced investors may require to the additional hand-holding less experienced investors may appreciate.
All commercial property buyers need to perform due diligence before they make a purchase commitment, and Criterium-Bennett Engineers guides them through that process. Our licensed Professional Engineers perform a thorough visual inspection of the property that encompasses its overall condition, focusing on all the critical building components (structural, roof, electrical, plumbing, air and heating, paving, drainage, etc.), environmental factors (including air flow and insulation) and safety issues – fire and other potential hazards.
The written report Criterium-Bennett Engineers produces provides a detailed summary of our findings, highlighting building strengths as well as any weaknesses or potential problems we identify. We clearly explain a building’s condition, so our clients can make confident, informed decisions about their purchase. No one wants to be surprised about a building after purchasing it. Criterium-Bennett Engineers has inspected hundreds of buildings of all kinds. Our experienced engineers know how to help our clients avoid surprises.
