Reserve Study for Condominiums and HOAs

A reserve study your association can rely on

At Criterium-Cromer Engineers, we know the longevity of your association depends on careful management of your community’s assets and capital reserves. We understand how buildings perform over time, and we have built an enviable reputation for providing reserve studies that identify risks, reveal opportunities, and manage costs.

Structural Integrity Reserve Study

Recent updates to the Florida Statutes have introduced new requirements for condominiums, including the need to conduct a Structural Integrity Reserve Study. Depending on the size and location of your building(s), you may be required to have a Professional Engineer perform an inspection of the roof, structure, fireproofing and fire protection systems, plumbing, electrical systems, waterproofing and exterior painting, windows and exterior doors, and more.

Please contact us to learn more about these new requirements – we are here to help!

Real engineering expertise applied in real time

Not all reserve study providers use licensed engineers. Every reserve study performed by Criterium-Cromer Engineers is conducted and/or reviewed by a licensed, Professional Engineer and includes observations and analysis gathered in the field.

We are your community engineer

Most community associations prefer to work with an engineering consultant that knows their community. We operate right from our headquarters in Miami Beach, ensuring your engineer has local expertise on buildings, maintenance costs, and environmental regulations and considerations.

Clear communication with your community association

We do more than write your report in a clear, easy-to-understand way. We attend association meetings to help you present and explain it to your community. Your personal Criterium-Cromer engineer will be by your side every step of the way.


Meeting—and exceeding—requirements and regulations

A full reserve study focuses on specific parts of your property, describing their quantity, condition, typical useful life, and probable replacement costs. The financial analysis measures the impact of maintaining and replacing these key components over the next 20 – 30 years and recommends a reserve funding strategy to make sure adequate funds are available when needed.

Upon request, we can provide even more. An enhanced reserve study can:

  • include a Property Condition Report with comprehensive descriptions of critical components and systems like plumbing, HVAC, roof and siding, and common interiors
  • expand reporting beyond common inventory elements into individually owned assets that may affect value
  • suggest accessibility improvements to amenities and assets, providing a guide for good property management
  • propose alternative solutions that upgrade instead of replace existing components, so properties operate more efficiently
  • explore and recommend alternative funding arrangements and investments, including iterative funding options analysis

For the life of your association™
The value of reserve studies is best revealed in maintenance cost savings, smart investments in improvements, and peace of mind. Request a proposal for your next reserve study.
