Commercial Building Audits
When we talk about commercial building audits, it’s important to realise the difference between a building inspection and a building audit. An audit is usually performed with less frequency than an inspection, and audits are usually taken on by responsible building owners voluntarily to ensure their buildings are up to code. Commercial building audits are a way to discover potential issues with the safety, fire or building standards of your commercial real estate. Commercial building audits are typically undertaken after the completion of a commercial construction project.
Inspections are usually carried out regularly and are mandatory, therefore inspections tend to more specific when looking for particular items (fire hazards, safety compliance, etc) and take place before, during and after the construction of a building.
What are the benefits of a commercial building audit?
The biggest benefit of a commercial building audit service is that you will be able to pick up on any potential issues with your building before a regularly scheduled inspection is due. This will give you some breathing room to figure out the best way to move forward with repairs or changes to the building to bring it up to code come inspection time.
Having a building audit will give you an opportunity to make sure your building:-
- Complies with the Building Code of Australia or the relevant construction standards applicable at the time of construction
- Complies with local or state Building Regulations
- Satisfies all Australian standards
