Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. (ABB) was retained by The Tan Group of Palo Alto, California to perform a due diligence inspection and evaluation of a 13 story, steel framed, GFRC clad office building in Oakland, California.

The work included roofing, window & building envelope reviews; mechanical, HVAC and electrical systems review. ABB also provided a cursory review of maintenance records as well as construction permits, and maintenance repairs made in the previous the last ten years. The various components were surveyed in an attempt to determine existing conditions and to develop a brief recommended repair or replacement program with associated cost estimates. The study was partially responsible for a decision not to purchase the building.
