Colorado Reserve Statutes - HB-1359
Colorado has adopted specific statutes related to reserve studies, which are set forth in Colorado HB-1359. While the original bill required a reserve study at least every three years, the final bill simply requires that associations adopt a governance policy with respect to reserve studies. Unfortunately, this language is rather ambiguous. Our discussions with Colorado lawyers tells us that most are recommending that associations adopt policies which specify a full reserve study every three years, with annual updates for intervening years.
1) We wrote the book on reserve studies - "Reserve Studies - The Complete Guide"
2) We wrote the standards on reserve studies - ICBI's Generally Accepted Reserve Study Standards - Facilities Advisors president Gary Porter is also president of the International Capital Budgeting Institute (ICBI)

- Competitive fees
- Easy-to-read reports

Competitive fees - We are able to offer competitive fees because of our extensive experience and dedication to using technology to make our services more efficient. This also translates into time savings and the ability to keep fees competitive. We are the only reserve study company to have automated the workflow process to electronically capture component data on site and translate that information into a reserve study report.
We "scope" the reserve study to obtain the right level of detail fo rthe reserve study; the level at which money is expended by the association, as that is the ONLY way the reserve study can ever be correlated to your association financial statements. This makes us more efficient and gives you the best reports. We ask you questions and help tailor the reserve study to your unique association. Our internet-based software, with a multi-dimensional database structure (hidden in the background) and capabilities for three category levels plus major and minor components, gives us the ability to provide data at the correct level, and still be able to "roll up" the data into concise reports.
