Building Evaluation

The building evaluation team, consisting of Evergreen staff, architects and engineers, work together in conducting building evaluations and plan for new space build-outs. Evergreen will assist in inspecting prospective buildings to determine whether properties can support present and future needs.

The team’s evaluations uncover conditions important for long-term decisions, mitigating unanticipated costs, and assisting with negotiations so that clients can maximize their monetary potential and build a space that suits their needs.

The building evaluation team works together in creating a Life Cycle and Sustainability Analysis (LCSA), evaluating building costs and uncovering what can impact a building throughout all life phases. LCSA includes installed equipment to evaluate the direct and indirect cost burdens associated with a product, process, or activity. Assessments can translate into cost savings for tenants and owners.
