Physical Building Management

BULD 1080

Delivered in partnership with the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario, ACMO you will explore the physical aspects of the total site, and how to get the most economical life out of the common elements through good maintenance practices. Examine residential condominium structures, proactive and predictive maintenance, appropriate management practices for effective day-to-day building management, and the handling of emergency situations. Investigate heating, air conditioning, ventilation, electricity, building envelope, plumbing systems, life safety systems, elevators, performance audits and reserve fund studies, and grounds-keeping from a condominium management perspective. Determine when to call in professionals and how to work with them, problem-solve within the physical building environment, and effectively communicate issues and solutions to the Board. Review the basics of condominium manager licensing so that managers are aware of their obligations under the Condominium Management Services Act. As of November 1, 2017, this is one of the four courses which are the educational requirements for a general license under the Condominium Management Services Act. This Act requires all condominium managers and providers in Ontario to be licensed.
