Reinstatement Cost Assessments

A Specialised Service by Koste Chartered Quantity Surveyors

At Koste Chartered Quantity Surveyors, our Reinstatement Cost Assessment (RCA) service is an indispensable tool for safeguarding your commercial, industrial, and retail properties in Australia. In a country prone to unpredictable weather conditions, having an accurate and reliable RCA is not just a good practice—it’s a necessity.

What is Reinstatement Cost Assessment (RCA)?

A Reinstatement Cost Assessment is a professional evaluation of the costs involved in reinstating your building in the event of significant damage or destruction.

Our RCA covers a comprehensive range of factors, from demolition costs and elemental rebuilding costs to construction inflation allowances, professional and statutory fees, and even loss of rent assessments.

Why is RCA Important?

Determining the right amount to insure can be a complex process.

Over-insuring leads to unnecessarily high premiums, while under-insuring leaves you financially vulnerable when disaster strikes. Our RCA service ensures that you strike the right balance, providing you with an insurance replacement report that is neither too high nor too low.

How We Conduct RCA

Site Inspection

Verifying the accuracy of the construction documentation through on-site measurements.
