Commercial building inspections can be an existing property that a buyer has made an offer on, pending a Building Inspection. It can be a small to a bigger shop, or even part of a mid sized shopping centre.
Commercial Inspections Vary
Mostly they are be small to medium office suites. However, the inspection can include common grounds like parking and the like. We will also inspect the grounds as much as possible.
This property was bought off-the-plan.
We have inspected many shops, many medical centres – and Nick, the inspector, built a hospital plus a medical centre in his construction days. Mostly his building was commercial work.
Canberra a is not that big, so the inspection prices here are listed in a regular price range. However, if you have a bigger property, we need to review it.
Commercial Inspections and Insurance Work
This is hail damage being repaired in 2020 in the centre of Canberra.

While these buildings are large, most commercial building inspections are smaller. A dentist’s surgery, for example is a usual size. A restaurant, or a doctor’s offices is not uncommon. These are more standard and are in the simple building inspection price.
Commercial Inspections Off the Plan
Another kind of inspection is for the client who bought the project from the plan, and it is now ready with practical completion.
However, they can be a bit involved and if you need help, and that may mean negotiating, let us know. In these cases you are likely contracted to another Class A Builder. They are the top ranking builders in ACT, with no limits on what they are permitted to build. Nick is a Class A Builder. Thus, our help can position the client on an even footing.
Canberra Factory Inspections
Nick has inspected small to medium factories in Fyshwick. Inspected medium to large factory-office complexes elsewhere in ACT. Also, small and large factories, and even a large art studio, were inspected in Queanbeyan.
Sometimes, these inspections need additional work like getting plans from the shire council building department so a Compliance Summary Report can be made. This involves extra time and cost as on the inspection prices page.
In 2020 and 2021 Nick was involved in considerable hail damage inspections.
Overseas and on other states Nick’s commercial inspections were usually around 3,000 to 10,000 square meters in size. He did many in Taiwan and Japan. Such would take many days, depending on the budget and details needed.
On this please ring Nick (0418 388 911) and have a discussion. Commercial Building Inspections are generally simpler, but the stakes can be higher, and anything needing fixing is needed knowing now. Depending on the property, Nick may also recommends getting another to separately to inspect the roofing and gutters.
