Condominium Performance Audits

Unlocking the value of performance audits with CDW Engineering

Performance audits are a requirement for some Condominium Acts, such as Ontario, and are critical for identifying deficiencies that need to be addressed in newly constructed residential condominium buildings and common element corporations. Although a performance audit may not be required in your jurisdiction, we feel this is a necessary step to protect your investment.

Why performance audits are undertaken

Performance audits are undertaken on newly constructed buildings. The purpose is to ensure completion of the work, confirm the work generally conforms to the construction documents, such as drawings and specifications, and to identify any deficiencies noted in the materials or workmanship, based on a visual walk through survey.

When performance audits are required

According to regulations, performance audits must be done prior to the condominium’s first anniversary of registration. This timeframe is consistent with other important assessments, such as the Reserve Fund Study, which is also due within the first year of registration. By combining performance audits with reserve fund studies, condominium organizations can streamline the process, save money, and assure regulatory compliance.

Qualified assessors for reliable assessments

The integrity of performance audits hinges on the qualifications of the assessors. In some provinces, only professional engineers or certified architects are permitted to conduct performance audits. CDW Engineering understands the value of having qualified professionals at the helm. Our team consists of building consultants and professional engineers who bring a wealth of experience and expertise to every performance audit, ensuring accurate assessments and actionable insights for our clients.
