Building System Evaluation Consulting

Our building assessment service includes a thorough evaluation of HVAC, plumbing and fire protection systems 

IEI’s building system evaluation consulting service provides facility owners with an assessment of a building’s HVAC, plumbing and fire protection systems. Our qualified experts analyze a system’s condition, useful life, energy efficiency and observe possible hazards.

Why would a facility owner want to hire us? IEI is retained to perform building system evaluations for numerous reasons. Some of these include:

  • As part of a routine condition update
  • To investigate a problematic or defective system
  • As part of due diligence associated with a pending sale
  • To provide recommendations for repair, maintenance, potential upgrades, estimated repair costs and estimated upgrade costs

We understand the challenges of due diligence in real estate transactions, and therefore are usually able to start a project in a reasonable timeframe.

Our experts have seen most, if not all types of system defects.

Our experts know their codes

Our engineers’ experience with the various components and products of a system, and its useful life and limitations, makes them well qualified to evaluate a building’s condition. Their understanding of the various building codes and standards, and the standards of care for the design, construction and maintenance of a facility, put them a cut above many other building system experts.

Our Evaluation Process

As part of the building evaluation, IEI consultants review the building plans and inspect various components, such as the piping systems, pumps, boilers, chillers, cooling towers, heating and cooling equipment, fire barrier penetrations and much more.
