We specialize in evaluating the physical condition of a building to determine deficiencies and related repairs & costs for which a seller, buyer or existing building owner can make informed decisions as to how to proceed in a sale, purchase, maintenance or capital expenditures on a specific piece of real estate.
Property Condition Assessment (PCA) is a systematic review process to identify and communicate physical deficiencies to a user, primarily used during the selling or purchasing of a real estate and establishing capital needs.
ASBLT D3's Property Condition Assessment teams consist of professionals practicing architecture, engineering, construction & property management. Construction litigation & building forensics are also areas of experience by team members. The team is well equipped with a thermal imaging camera & metering equipment.

With 39 years of expertise in mechanical construction, as well as being a master plumber, Dave has tackled problems and created solutions in every conceivable scenario. He has a skill set that never seems to stop growing as he is now leading our thermal scanning forensic division.
For our building forensic work visual observation is the first step in understanding and rooting out the owner perceived building problem(s). We review any drawings and written documentation of the construction to focus into possible areas of concern.
During the visual observation tasks, we will utilize infrared imaging technology to provide a variety of thermographic views of the building systems.
Destructive testing is removing building materials/components to obtain visual confirmation of the problem and photo documentation to be used in solving, detailing and correcting the building problem.
Depending on the size of the building forensic services can be as simple as a visual walk-through with a verbal report or as extensive as a full report with an in-depth solution(s) with repair cost estimate.
At ASBLTD3 we aim to create a positive working environment for our team, built on collaboration, teamwork, diverse ideas, and fun. We hire people who are ambitious, sharp, have a sense of humor, and who want to join a firm that puts a spotlight on clients above our own recognition.
Thermal Imaging goes beyond the surface!
