Sinking Fund Forecasts & Insurance Replacement Valuations

Easy-to-read, easy-to-update, comprehensive reports with realistic valuations

Since 1994 Ron Callaghan (my dad) has been providing Sinking Fund forecasts & Insurance Replacement Valuations for body corporate complexes throughout Southeast Queensland.

I joined the family business in 2008, as dad tries to move himself into retirement (he’s been a Quantity Surveyor for 54 years now!)

Together, we ensure that you receive comprehensive reports that are easy to understand and well-priced, using realistic valuations.

Accuracy is key

It’s one thing to produce a report, but another to get the numbers right.

We work with builders daily on new projects, and know exactly what things cost. Painting, passenger lift upgrades, concrete cancer repairs, balustrade replacement, scaffolding, new roofs and so on.

Many of our competitors rely solely on published industry averages like the Rawlinsons Construction Cost handbooks. We prefer to use actual rates provided by builders & tradies—then cross check with Rawlinsons.

Service areas

We are a small family business, so to keep costs low we operate from home offices based on the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast & Brisbane.

We’re happy to drive anywhere in South East Queensland and Northern NSW to inspect your property—Bay Islands included.

The genius of simplicity

In the words of Albert Einstein…

“Everything should be as simple as possible but no simpler.”


It doesn’t take a genius to prepare a Sinking Fund or Insurance Valuation—luckily for me. But it does take time, industry knowledge and logical thinking.

I’ve built my reports around the ”simple but no simpler” philosophy. So you won’t find any pointless fluffy bits like graphs and pie charts in our reports, just numbers and facts.

Experience matters

We produce 3–5 Sinking Funds and 4–5 Insurance Valuations per week, and have done so for many years. We’ve seen it all.

Property types & sizes we handle

Basically we do everything in the following categories:




We can do anything from a typical duplex pair through to 350+ lot body corp complexes.
But we have out limitations…

properties we don’t handle:

*We avoid high rise buildings (over 9 floors)

*We avoid factories with specialised equipment (over 4,000 sqm lettable floor area)

*We avoid large shopping centres (over 8,000 sqm lettable floor area)

Why us and not some other crowd?

Experience, local industry knowledge, and attention to detail is what makes us strong. As a locally-owned, 2nd generation family business, customer satisfaction is our priority. If you’re not happy, neither are we.

Sinking Funds are no joke, and so is our “no clowns here” guarantee

Many of our competitors send a somewhat-trained, not-really-qualified “inspector” to your property to measure it up. I think they keep their actual Quantity Surveyors locked away from public view, just crunching numbers.

This is insane. We send a qualified QS who has a four-year degree in Quantity Surveying and countless years of estimating and field experience.

And the proof is in the pudding. Our reports are more accurate and more reliable than the rest. They’re also more affordable.
