Brown & Beattie Ltd. provides services related to Capital Expenditure Planning for buildings of various types. This can take the form of Reserve Fund Studies for condominiums and co-operative housing properties or a Building Condition Assessment for rental or investment properties.

These exercises include a physical inspection of the property which assesses the condition and prioritizes various building and site components and can be customized to suit an owner’s individual needs.

Building components can include but are not limited to:

Capital Expenditure Planning for Investment Properties
  • Structural such as garages or balconies

  • Building Envelope

  • Windows & Exterior Doors

  • Interior Finishes

  • Mechanical Systems

  • Electrical Components

  • Site Finishes & Storm Drainage

  • Environmental

  • Elevators

Our engineers assess the potential future expenditures related to each building component included in the Study. This may include recommending the complete replacement of a component or a major repair or retrofit. The analysis typically forecasts a period of 5 years from the date of the inspection but can project much further to over 30 years such as for Reserve Fund Studies. Our final reports will outline the various major building components and the related anticipated future capital expenditures in a concise easy-to-follow format.
