Services Provided By Genispec And Conducted On Gestion Wilkar Properties

Reserve Fund Study

Under Bill 16, a reserve fund study is an analysis required to ensure the longevity of buildings with more than 5 storeys in Quebec every five years. Its purpose is to anticipate future renovations, maintenance and infrastructure improvements. The reserve fund study ensures the integrity of the building, which guarantees its longevity and a high quality living environment for its inhabitants. By assessing building conditions, estimating costs and analyzing maintenance recommendations, reserve fund studies guarantee the preservation of the building. 

Building Maintenance Handbook 

A building maintenance handbook for condominiums is a summary document which identifies the history of the site, the date of construction or renovation, the date of receipt, the technical description of the building, the years of completion for site projects, and contact details of the companies which carried out the maintenance. It is essential that this document is up to date to ensure effective property management, planning and budgeting over several years. The building maintenance handbook for condominium service is a complementary service to Genispec’s reserve fund study, in compliance with Bill 16. 

Facade Inspection

Genispec specializes in facade inspections in accordance with Bill 122; which requires a thorough building inspection for buildings of 5 storeys or more. Such inspections must be conducted under the direction of an engineer that is part of the “Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec” (OIQ). The report must certify that the building is structurally sound and does not present any risks. The facade inspection report provided by Genispec’s engineers includes a detailed description of the observations and provides recommendations for correcting defects that could possibly develop dangerous conditions for the building. The facade inspection should be conducted every 5 years. 

Parking Inspection

Under Bill 122, any parking lot containing at least one slab that does not rest on the ground must be thoroughly inspected to evaluate the condition of the elements by an engineer who is a member of the OIQ. Genispec’s team conducts thorough parking garage inspections to verify that the area is free of defects and potential liabilities. The underground parking inspection report provided by Genispec’s engineers includes a detailed description of the area and recommendations for reparations of defects that could possibly develop into hazardous conditions.
