Helping condominium communities plan for the future
It takes fortitude to question the status quo such as your current approach to maintenance and repairs. After decades of working with condominiums, we understand no two communities are alike. Each has a unique set of circumstances, challenges, and considerations. That’s why we’ve designed the Savings BluePrint – a best-practice, fully customized, yet repeatable process that empowers every community. Our guidance through this decision-making framework allows community associations and their homeowners to create custom plans, confident in their decision to invest in a new approach.
Do you know the true condition of your building envelope? Do you know how and when to make maintenance, repair, replacement and/or restoration decisions? As we guide communities through our Savings BluePrint process, we focus on creating transparency for all stakeholders and fostering collaboration and discussion.
Gives Association Board Members the tools to navigate the complex decisions that come with community leadership and uphold their fiduciary responsibility to the homeowners they serve.
Keeps Homeowners involved and informed with all the facts they need. This creates peace of mind about the long-term value of their biggest investment: their homes.
Provides Property Managers with a proven process and a specialist partner to oversee it with attentiveness, efficiency, and expertise, helping communities make the highest value, long-term decision.
Knowing when to replace aging building envelope components can be challenging. What is your plan?
The SPS Savings BluePrint is a 3-step planning process designed to help your condominium community make the best decision for your building envelope — a weather resistive barrier created by the proper integration of roofs, siding, windows, doors, and decks. It’s a roadmap for developing a plan that restores your community to worry-free living. The Savings BluePrint empowers you to make an actionable plan for your community that could include short-term maintenance and repairs, timely component replacement, and/or long-term restoration solutions that save you money today and in the future.
Gather the Facts
What are the existing conditions of your community’s building envelope? The first step of any solution-oriented process is understanding the current situation. The SPS Savings BluePrint starts with an in-depth evaluation of your exterior. We determine existing conditions and provide a detailed diagnosis based on facts. We uncover what materials were used to construct your community and how they were installed. We review what maintenance and repairs have been completed and the impact they have had on your envelope’s performance. We then provide a detailed report to help you fully understand the facts.
Explore Your Options
What will it take to address any facts that were uncovered? Now that SPS has accurately evaluated your community’s exterior, how do our findings impact your maintenance and reserve planning? In this phase of the Savings BluePrint process, we’ll help you understand the potential outcomes of following your current maintenance plan compared to alternative solutions.
We’ll show you what it will cost to replace or repair components, identify material that could be used, and explore how each material option affects your community’s operating expenses. Each option is designed with your community’s financial circumstances and aesthetic preferences in mind and includes a detailed cost analysis. You’ll get the information, insight, and bottom-line clarity to confidently choose the best path forward for your community.
Collaborate and Plan a Path Forward
Once you have chosen an option for ensuring the long-term value of your community’s homes, we create a transparent and accurate plan that details the project scope, timing, and cost. We collaborate with all stakeholders in the planning process. SPS can help you secure favorable financing options, if needed, with exclusive terms, making sure your plan is cost-effective and affordable for all homeowners.
