As we entered into 2019, it gave us all a chance to reflect on our year. We have set goals and have let the failures of 2018 disappear. As the first quarter of the year passes by and the weather changes, Asset Construction wants you to look at your condo condition. This is the year of condo updates, so why not take advantage of a very important investment.
For property managers, regional managers and Board Members, your 2019 wish-list will look a little different. Those projects that were left behind in 2018 may be front and centre for this year. This could be the moment that the outdated furniture in your building’s lobby is finally modernized, and the peeling wallpaper all throughout the common elements is refreshed.

Changing the Lighting in Your Building’s Common Elements
Lighting can make or break a space. Colour temperatures can change the mood and feel of the common areas. Do you want your residents and guests to feel excited to come home or dread the idea of coming home to the ‘dungeon’? Even the light fixtures have job in creating a more welcoming space. So, what will you do? Upgrading to energy efficient LED lighting is an option to be considered. By investing in this technology, energy consumption will reduce, thus saving the property money. It’s time to upgrade and Asset Construction can help.
Revisiting Your Condo’s Wayfinding Signs
Does your condo building have clear wayfinding signs? In a condo building, wayfinding signage guides people through parking garages, while interior condo signage helps with orientation and navigation throughout the building. The idea of condo signage seems like common sense, however, it’s best to have an outsider’s perspective. Is it easy to navigate to shared spaces? Is it easy for your guests to find elevators, hallways and your unit? If you answered ‘no’ to any of these questions, you may need help with mapping out your building. When used effectively, wayfinding signs can help people to navigate or recall the building floor plan. This can help decease accidents and even increase your property value. Find out how Asset Construction can point you in the right direction.
Making Sure Your Building Envelope Meets Code
The Canadian housing market is becoming even harder to enter for first time homebuyers. With the changes on how we can qualify for mortgages, individuals just cannot afford a home anymore. The rental market is on fire and competition is stiff. Are you having troubles filling your vacant units? Does the exterior of your building look like it hasn’t been touched since the 1950’s? If so, it’s time for an Asset Revitalization.
It’s human nature to ‘judge a book by its cover’ and your building envelope could be a deceiving failure for possible tenants. It’s time to modernize your property and renovate to current building codes. Asset Construction provides all-in-one services from design + build, engineering, project management and more.
