Due Diligence

Property Condition Assessments
Assessment reports are an important part of due diligence and maintenance planning. They provide the information you need before making a purchase and include a capital expenditures plan for immediate and long-term renewals and retrofit/restoration programs.

Whether for a purchase or sale agreement, financing and refinancing, capital expenditure planning or pre- and post-leasing review, our experienced team of engineers will evaluate the physical condition and operating effectiveness of all building elements. Our property condition assessments offer a due diligence review of available drawings and documents and all building components and systems for all building types – commercial; industrial; institutional; office; retail; mixed-use; hospitality and municipal.

Working with our partners and associate experts, we provide comprehensive Phase I and II environmental site assessments and fire safety reviews as well as designated/hazardous materials survey reports and testing.

Capital Planning
Our qualified team of engineers and managers are experienced in managing and assisting program administrators with mortgage undertaking management systems (MUMS) that are used by multi-property owners, REITs and lending institutions.

Reserve Fund Studies/Depreciation Reports
A Reserve Fund Study/Depreciation Report gives you an easy-to-follow overview of your condominium or strata’s building elements which includes their replacement cost as well as their remaining life expectancy. With that information, our engineers or planners create long-term maintenance plans that allow you to see whether your reserve fund contributions are adequate enough to implement reserve funding options that preserve or increase property value.

Certified Reserve Planners, registered with the Real Estate Institute of Canada (REIC), and provincially associated certified engineering and architectural technicians and technologists prepare our capital plans, reserve fund studies and depreciation reports; a registered professional engineer then signs and reviews them.

Warranty Reviews and Performance Audits
Whether your property is a townhouse complex, or a low-rise or high-rise building, our reports are designed to assist owners and property managers to more easily track and maintain a building’s deficiencies. Experienced staff will review buildings and compare the as-built conditions to the construction drawings in order to develop a clear report with a detailed deficiency-tracking list for your property.

Building Maintenance Plans and Program Development
A balanced mix of proactive and reactive measures identified in our maintenance plans and programs can help you avoid costly, reactive remedial rehabilitation programs and reduce both service interruption and costs over the lifespan of your building.

Our building-specific maintenance manuals and programs outline clear and realistic maintenance objectives and schedules to optimize performance and maintain and increase the value of your property. They provide a clear and simple understanding of the building elements, systems and equipment so you can more easily prioritize your building’s maintenance needs and maximize its lifespan.
