Facility Assessments in Kansas

Providing a holistic view of your building

Through a Building Assessment, our team investigates the building condition and systems to evaluate risk and overall building performance.


Whether you are renovating your current building, building new, or evaluating several buildings, you need a safe and functional space to provide the best services to your building occupants. Our team of experts provides you with a holistic view of your building’s condition to determine the best process for construction.

With a high level of attention to quality, we evaluate the building and site early during preconstruction in order to reduce the environmental impact of practices and materials and focus on life cycle assessments (LCA). We use programs to quickly evaluate energy usage versus utility, maintenance, and replacement costs to provide our clients the most sustainable option.

Key Benefits

1. Risk Mitigation

Assessments help identify potential safety hazards and structural issues, allowing property owners and managers to address them before accidents or costly repairs become necessary.

2. Cost Estimation

Building assessments provide estimates for needed repairs and maintenance, helping property owners budget for these expenses and avoid unexpected financial burdens.

3. Informed Decision-Making

Buyers can use assessment reports to make informed decisions when purchasing property, as they gain insight into the condition and potential long-term costs associated with the building.

4. Asset Management

Property owners and facility managers can create effective maintenance plans based on assessment findings, extending the life of building systems and reducing operating costs.

5. Optimized Investments

By prioritizing repairs and upgrades based on assessment recommendations, property owners can maximize the return on investment and increase the property’s value.

6. Legal Compliance

Building assessments can help ensure that properties meet local building codes and regulations, reducing the risk of fines or legal complications.

7. Insurance Benefits

Assessments can be used to negotiate insurance premiums, as insurers may offer better rates for well-maintained and low-risk properties.

8. Sustainability

Assessments can identify opportunities to improve energy efficiency and sustainability, which can lead to reduced operating costs and a smaller environmental footprint.

9. Financial Planning

Property owners can use assessment data for long-term financial planning, understanding when major repairs or replacements will be necessary and how to budget for them.

10. Tenant Satisfaction

Well-maintained properties with regular assessments tend to have happier and more satisfied tenants, which can improve tenant retention and attract new renters.

11. Lender Requirements

Many lenders require building assessments as part of their due diligence process before financing a property purchase or renovation.
