Capital Replacement Studies

CDW Engineering’s in-depth Capital Replacement Studies help you navigate the future with precision

In an ever-changing landscape of property ownership and management, the value of strategic planning cannot be emphasized. Building owners, asset managers, and property managers are responsible for estimating future major maintenance or replacement expenditures to maintain the durability and efficiency of their assets. CDW Engineering understands the varied nature of this dilemma and is committed to offering thorough Capital Replacement Studies (also known as Building Capital Plans) that provide actionable insights and strategic recommendations to our clients.

Our forecasts can be tailored to consider strategies to decarbonize buildings in order to reach national climate commitments (Net-Zero Emissions by 2050).

Whether it’s urban centres like Toronto, the rural locations of British Columbia, or the vibrant communities of Quebec, our team is dedicated to providing tailored solutions that meet the unique needs of each client and property.

Uncovering the essence of Capital Replacement Studies

A Capital Replacement Study is a cornerstone of the strategic planning process, providing a roadmap for budgeting of large system replacements in the long run. At the centre of this study is a thorough examination of the asset’s components, which includes a wide range of variables that affect its condition, durability, and operational efficiency.

Step 1: Document Review

Step 2: Visual Assessment

Step 3: Reporting

Tailored forecast timelines to match client needs

While a 20-year time range is commonly used for forecasting, we understand that each client’s requirements are unique. As a result, our technique is highly adaptable, allowing us to customize our forecasts to meet specific deadlines and objectives. Whether shorter or longer periods are required, we collaborate closely with our customers to ensure that our projections are consistent with their strategic aims and financial objectives.

The importance of regular updates for maximizing benefits

In the ever-changing landscape of property ownership and management, being ahead of the game is critical. To optimize the benefits of a Capital Replacement Study, we recommend periodic updates to keep the study current and reflective of changing market or site conditions.

Charting a course for financial stability using detailed financial analysis

In addition to the physical analysis included in the Capital Replacement Study, we can provide a complete financial analysis that incorporates the findings of the physical evaluation. Through precise cash flow estimates and reserve fund planning, we assist our clients in charting a road for financial stability and ensuring appropriate money for future replacements.

Empowering clients with flexible reporting

CDW Engineering recognizes the value of flexibility and convenience for our clients. That is why we supply our Capital Replacement Study data in Excel format, allowing for easy integration into current systems without the limitations of proprietary software.
