CCPIA Videos - Certified Commercial Property Inspectors Association

About this video:

The video demonstrates how to perform a commercial building drainage inspection, with an emphasis on following the path of water and prioritizing drainage features. The ComSOP elements under Section 6.5.2 Exterior that inspectors should consider include:

a. Vegetation, surface drainage, and retaining walls that could potentially impact the structure adversely.
b. The storm water drainage system.
c. The general topography of the area.

To demonstrate this, the video showcases circling the building to:

a. Examine the slope/topography.
b. Assess concrete troughs present.
c. Inspect the roof drainage system.
d. Check the retention area.
e. Evaluate retaining walls in place.

By following these steps and focusing on key areas, inspectors can effectively assess the drainage situation of a building.
