UES specializes in commercial building and code compliance, from offices, high rise condos, 50+ unit apartment buildings, warehouses, and more. When you need a commercial building inspection, consult us for commercial code permitting, compliance consulting, and commercial plan reviews.

Our commercial building inspections includes the following services:

To keep your property up to date, UES also offers maintenance or milestone inspections for pre-existing buildings. Our associate building inspectors can help keep your property or properties (both residential or commercial) up-to-date and compliant with your municipal codes and regulations.

Our maintenance inspections can evaluate structural deterioration, determine if a building is safe for human occupancy, provide a detailed inspection report to the appropriate offices, and make sure your building's structural integrity is in accordance with architectural and engineering specifications. We also offer emergency inspections in the event your building may be flagged as non-compliant.
