The life of a Building Management Consultant means no two days are the same. One day you may be at the Sunshine Coast conducting a common property condition report at a 10-lot scheme on the beach, the next you are at a 300-lot scheme in the CBD putting together a sinking fund forecast.
The activities conducted in the working week of a building management consultant heavily relies upon the reports requested by Bodies Corporate.
Below we take an in depth look at some of the tasks undertaken by our Building Management Consultants on a daily and weekly basis.
Safety and Compliance
We carry out safety and compliance inspections and report on non-compliance and risks at your building, advising how they might be controlled. We offer maintenance schedule and log book packages that ensure that your property is maintained in the best practice, and all aspects of the property are compliant with a variety of safety-related legislation including the WH&S Act (2011) and Building Fire Safety Regulations.
Sinking Fund Forecast
Our sinking fund forecasts present a detailed 15-year forecast to give your body corporate a clear understanding of predicted expenditure, as well as identifying provisional sums that should be set aside. Star BMS’ professionally prepared sinking fund forecasts help your body corporate understand the sinking fund levies that should be collected to keep your building operating well and to adequately maintain all common areas.
Building Insurance Valuations
Failing to have an accurate and up to date insurance valuation can result in inflated premiums or insufficient cover in the event of a claim. Our experienced quantity surveyors will provide you with an accurate insurance valuation, giving you peace of mind that should you need to claim, your valuation won’t cause any issues.
Building Management and Maintenance Systems
Our building management and maintenance system is perfect for those wishing to detail and schedule the tasks required to efficiently and effectively manage the common property of a body corporate.
Common Property Condition Reports
Common property condition reports carried out by Star BMS are a great way to identify any maintenance issues that should be rectified to prevent deterioration of the building.
Building Management Statement Consulting
Many new urban developments contain areas of shared facilities between commercial, retail and residential schemes. A building management statement (BMS) is a document that governs the relationship between the residential bodies corporate and the volumetric commercial/retail lots. Star BMS is able to interpret the BMS document, identify areas of shared facilities, and define the ways that expenses are apportioned. We aim to ensure the management of your shared facilities is as simple as possible.
The most effective way to ensure your building remains compliant through the maze of legislation is to be proactive and implement a compliance schedule. After inspecting the premises, our compliance consultants will recommend a schedule for the numerous necessary routine compliance activities, thereby minimising the possibility of fines and exposure to risks.
Our experienced building management and compliance experts inspect your premises and consult with you to provide a wide range of advice essential for Bodies Corporate.If you would like an obligation free consultation for your scheme, click here to contact the Star BMS team today.
