Property Condition Assessments

A Property Condition Assessment (PCA) helps the current or future owner to understand the facility and provides them with a roadmap for potential repairs and upgrades to extend the service life of the facility.

Aimed at building owners, developers, and investors who wish to gain an understanding of a facility’s condition prior to a potential real estate or financial transaction, the PCA outlines the overall condition of the facility, including the identification and prioritization of repairs, as well as the property’s general compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Property Condition Assessments

Our consultants evaluate the site conditions and in-place building systems, including the roof, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. Our report identifies any immediate or near-term remediation required and provides a range of probable repair costs. We note any deficiencies that may impede use by individuals with disabilities. We also project the cost to maintain the property over time, with a given reserve schedule.

Accessibility Consulting

At Walker, we care about promoting a barrier-free environment for individuals with disabilities. Accessibility is important to us, not only because it helps disabled individuals, but it enables a property to thrive from more potential business. We have evaluated multifamily housing, commercial development, schools, medical facilities, and outdoor recreation facilities. We provide the client with a reliable and knowledgeable team who specialize in accessibility surveys and construction observations. Accessibility consulting services include:
