    Default going rate for a commercial inspection.

    Can any Commercial Home Inspectors give me an idea on how to charge for a large Inspection. I've been doing Commercial for a long time. I've done bars, restaurants, bowling alleys and all other kinds but I was asked to Inspect a 60,000 sq. ft. building. This building houses a restaurant, pharmacy, a dental and several more. I have done all of these, individually, at one time or another but I really don't know how to charge for the whole building. Any suggestion would be appreciated.... Gilbert

    First, I didn't get into commercial buildings a lot, and some that I did were high-rises (typically meaning 8 stories and higher) which were being sold (mostly vacant office buildings).

    Now that I've said not to pay a lot of attention to me specific answer, think in general terms:

    Will you be doing each occupancy ("restaurant, pharmacy, a dental and several more") any differently than when you did each individually?

    Seems the main difference would be 1 roof and 1 building (albeit the same size as the individual roofs and building added together),

    Then some potential additional items if not a strip center type building, i.e., a mall type building.

    Hopefully, others can offer additional things to consider in pricing it out.

    Of course. That makes a lot of sense. I just need to figure out how much I normally charge for these inspections one-at-a-time and take it from there. Thanks, that is useful...
