Full roof-to-basement property inspections to determine priority and long-range capital and financial planning

PMG will professionally inspect every structural, mechanical, and aesthetic element of a building to determine remaining useful life; identify existing and potential violations; and present repair, replacement, and remediation options.

 

PMG will submit to the property's decision-makers a photographic record and written report of findings, and develop a practical, documented plan of action, including timelines and costs, to achieve the objectives of the property within its budgetary constraints. Following presentation of the documented inspection, the property's decision-makers may choose to engage PMG to perform as project manager, as discussed above.

  • Identify and report the most current ways similar existing buildings are implementing greening initiatives
  • Present an authoritative list of structural, mechanical, and operational greening options appropriate to the building
  • Design and facilitate greening education programs for residents and tenants to raise awareness and cooperation
  • Provide a detailed cost analysis and timeline of greening initiatives that are identified as viable for the building
  • Offer specialized recommendations for how to reduce energy costs for electricity, fuel, and other purchased energy
  • Explain government and other incentives that can result in reduced greening costs
  • Show the anticipated cost/benefit relationship for various greening options.
     

PMG's greening program is proven to yield significant savings for client properties.

 

PMG manages many of the greening options we are able to recommend and help building implement so that substantial cost savings are realized while working toward building sustainability.

 

Building certification and recertification for South Florida residential, commercial, and industrial properties

The Florida Building Code requires that all buildings (except single-family residences, duplexes, and minor structures) be inspected at 40 years of age, and then every 10 years after.

 

PMG is expert in bringing structures into compliance with Florida's 10 Year and 40 Year Building Recertification requirements.

 

PMG will oversee the entire Recertification process to ensure that the property is maintained in a safe condition and that all devices and safeguards required by the Florida Building Code are maintained in good working order.

 

PMG will respond to a property's Notice of Required Inspection by arranging for the required structural and electrical, apparatus and equipment, and installations inspections; verifying and submitting the required written report to the Building Official; and managing any required remediation to bring the structure into compliance with all applicable Sections of the Building Code.
