Equipment Consulting

Trusted Electronic and Electromechanical Equipment Experts

Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Equipment are fundamental requirements of all modern-day buildings, including new, remodel, and rebuild construction projects. No building in the world can be inhabitable by humankind without these systems installed, operated, and maintained.

The YA Equipment Group employs experienced construction tradespeople, estimators, and engineers with an overall career understanding of how these systems are designed and constructed. With all this knowledge and technical expertise, we can forensically assess, evaluate, and determine all aspects of loss-related and resultant damage to properties of all kinds. That scope information is utilized to produce RCV and ACV cost estimates for your repair or replacement projects using the latest information. We also perform pre-loss assessments, Origin & Causation Analysis per NFPA 921 Regulations, Pre-Construction Plan Review, and Building Code Analysis Assessments.

When business equipment is damaged, the YA Equipment Group evaluates the extent of the damage and determines the most cost-effective way to return it to its pre-loss condition.

Our wide range of scientific experience and understanding of the field provide our clients with comprehensive, informative results you can trust.
