The Diocesan building inspection program was initiated in 1998 on the basis that all Diocesan-owned buildings are to be professionally inspected every ten (10) years. An inspection schedule was created whereby two Deaneries per year are identified to complete their inspections within the given year; each of these Deaneries is to be in a different Episcopal Area.
The Building Inspection Schedule (2008-2017) is also available for download.
Church buildings must be inspected by a professional commercial/institutional building inspector with the requisite expertise, training, and insurance. The Diocese does not endorse or require the use of a specific inspection firm. Parishes are free to procure an appropriately qualified commercial inspection company of their choice. The Building Inspection is also known as a Property Condition Assessment (PCA).
For rectory inspection requirements, please see the Rectories page.
In regards to ongoing property maintenance, the following document is provided as a parish reference resource: Parish Property Maintenance Guidelines.
