Real Estate Evaluation - Property Condition Assessment (ASTM PCA)

An ASTM Property Condition Assessment or ASTM PCA is a specific kind of due diligence, pre-purchase, pre-lease, or post-lease inspection, performed in accordance with specifications developed by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). This assessment is an evaluation of building systems to assess their physical condition, general code compliance, capacities/adequacies, repair and maintenance issues, and identification of potential environmental contaminants. The ASTM PCA assessment includes:

  • Review of government records
  • Review of building specifications and drawings 
  • Walk through survey 
  • Overview of the building's major systems (HVAC, MEP, etc.)
  • Recovery and deferred maintenance costs evaluation

In addition to completion of the ASTM PCA, EH&E can provide an evaluation of the indoor air quality (IAQ) conditions in the building including a visual and sensory assessment for mold. EH&E also provides ASTM Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) services, and asbestos/hazardous materials inspections.
