What happens during an inspection?
Because every building, tenant and shared occupants are different, our Commercial Property Analyst visually reviews the following:
- Building construction
- Occupant details, including potential fire sources and combustibility of materials
- Availability of fire hydrants, fire suppression systems and other water sources
- Exterior exposures from neighboring structures, vegetation and other materials
Our Property Analysts will need access to all areas of the building. They will look in storage, electrical, and sprinkler control rooms plus other areas, inside and out, to make sure they understand the structure and its fire protection systems. They will also take measurements where necessary.
They may ask questions about your building, including the structure, industrial machinery and storage arrangements. They won’t ask about your business practices. Our concern is for the physical structure and its risks from a property insurance standpoint.
