Improve cashflows and deepen your reserve fund.
Approximately 35% of annual maintenance fees are allocated to your reserve fund for future repair and replacement projects.
We review reserve funds daily, and in our experience most reserve funds do not accurately forecast future financial requirements, leading to significant shortfalls. This is evidenced by a continuous "catch-up" cycle, resulting in unplanned maintenance fee increases.
In most cases, reserve funds also do not take into consideration the strong Federal greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction requirements, which require buildings to eliminate natural gas burning equipment and increase electricity capacity.
Reservoir's suite of services are designed to help you have enough funds available to upgrade building systems to meet the changing environmental regulations.
