Warehouses and Light Industrial Inspection to the ASTM Standard

Industrial building inspections are performed on a wide range of commercial properties, including light manufacturing facilities, warehouses and distribution centers, flex spaces, commercial condominiums, and more.

A commercial property inspector understands that warehouses and light manufacturing facilities are dynamic. They encompass a broad range of production and storage processes, sometimes working around the clock to support continuous manufacturing processes. As a result, they are more vulnerable to unsustainable building and renovation, environmental concerns, and specialized equipment that could degrade a property's state. Therefore, having the physical condition of the building evaluated by a professional inspector is crucial, regardless of the client's goals for the inspection.

The warehouse inspection process is vital in business and shouldn't be overlooked. In addition, warehouses are part of the government's extensive and diverse real estate portfolio in the United States. 

Warehouses are structures used for storage, such as covered sheds, munitions storage, and buildings principally used for storing goods or supplies, as defined by the Federal Real Property Council Guidance on Real Property Inventory Reporting. This can encompass a wide range of structures of different shapes and sizes that are utilized for both long- and short-term storage needs. Consequently, warehouses need extra maintenance and attention.

Warehouses and light manufacturing spaces are very important and delicate facilities that need a lot of care and attention. Many firms, however, still haven't taken this into consideration. As a result, there are a lot of accidents and deaths in these facilities all around the world.
