Business Parks & Commercial Reserve Study

RDA makes business a breeze with our expert reserve study services.

Is a Business Park Reserve Study Necessary?

Business parks combine commercial, office, and retail spaces with professionally landscaped greenspaces and walkways. It’s no wonder that they’re so popular with tenants and workers. Just like any other property, though, these business parks can also deteriorate over time.



A business park reserve analysis can be a valuable tool for management and maintenance. It helps parks determine the level of funding they need to pay for the major repairs and replacements of the elements they are responsible for. This study includes an assessment of the park’s components and current funding balance, which are then used for business park capital planning.



A reserve study essentially lets you know how much money your reserves should have available at any given time. It also lays out a funding schedule that will help you reach the right funding level within a specified timeframe.
