Full-time | Part-time | Contract

Property Condition Assessments, LLC (PCA) is a multi-disciplined architectural and engineering consulting firm that specializes in providing due-diligence-related condition assessments for real-property owners, managers, investors, lenders, and tenants throughout the United States.

PCA is seeking full-time, part-time and independent contractors with architectural, construction, and engineering experience to conduct condition assessments for a wide variety of office (low- and high-rise), retail, industrial, multifamily residential, and hospitality properties in major metropolitan markets throughout the United States. Assessments are performed in connection with acquisition and finance transactions for PCA's institutional real estate clients. Projects required close attention to detail and exceptional technical writing skills with the ability to concisely articulate findings, both orally and in writing.

If you have a strong sense of career destiny and exceptional architectural and construction knowledge, but just haven't found an organization that appreciates your potential, then we welcome your consideration of a career with PCA.
