Building’s health check (BSI)

The BSI is a visual inspection of the components of all housing units and all public areas, in addition to an assessment of the whole building and the land.

Your directors receive a detailed report identifying :

  • significant disorders in each unit, common areas and the whole building
  • an appropriate recommendation for each of the disorders found
  • an estimate of the costs for each specific disorder and an overall assessment for each building

Carried out by one of FECHIMM’s technical advisor, the BSI allows you to properly plan your budgets and interventions over a 5 year period with an independent resource. The BSI can also assist in your refinancing efforts, if any.

Their expertise include :

  • planning the work in project mode
  • calling for tenders and hiring professionals and/or contractors
  • monitoring the work
  • monitoring guarantees

The working methods of technical advisors :

  • reduce risks associated with the projects
  • provide better implementation cost control
  • increase the level of quality of the work done
  • ensure the administrative compliance of the projects with their vis-à-vis government agencies ## Mutualisation des travaux de rénovation
