Observed Green Features Report for Existing Commercial Buildings
“Green” describes features, technologies and products that increase efficiency in a building’s energy and water usage, help protect the health of its occupants, and reduce the commercial property’s impact on the environment. Green buildings are healthier, more environmentally friendly, and economically smarter than average buildings. Green features:
- improve energy efficiency;
- reduce pollution;
- provide healthier air;
- increase comfort;
- reduce water usage preserve;
- natural resources;
- increase durability;
- make a building quieter;
- reduce maintenance;
- lower monthly costs; and
- improve resale value.
Nearly all green building codes and standards have been developed by private organizations and pertain to new construction, not existing commercial properties. Nevertheless, existing properties, by design, by luck, or through modification, have green features that clients should know about.
We don’t determine the “green-ness” of a building. The purpose of the green features report is to permit the inspector to easily point out common green features of the property thus increasing client awareness of the property’s green features.
The Observed Green Features Report may be ordered in conjunction with a complete commercial property inspection or as a separate, stand-alone inspection service.
