Building Inspections & Maintenance

The diocesan building inspection program was initiated in 1998 on the basis that all diocesan-owned buildings are to be professionally inspected every 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.

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.
