Engineers Lunch: Real Estate Budgeting 101

  • August 07, 2019
  • 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
  • The Esplanade, 2001 Butterfield Rd, Downers Grove, IL 60515

Brought to you by the Engineers Committee. 

Maintaining your building's operating systems costs money. As a Building Engineer, being able to communicate with your management team during the budgeting process is key to ensuring everyone is on the same page. By being an active participant in the budgeting process, you can effectively communicate any costs that arise associated with improvements and maintenance of the building systems. In addition, you'll also have a much better understanding of how the building operates from a financial standpoint. 

That's why you don't want to miss the August Engineers Lunch on Real Estate Budgeting 101 where a panel of experts will discuss the ins and outs of capital budgeting and how it affects a Building Engineer's role. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of the budgeting process and a knowledge of how a building's financials are a part of the whole picture when operating a building. 

Attendees will:

  • Gain insight into the process of Capital Budgeting.
  • Learn what a REIT is and how their business objectives may differ from a corporation or private owner.
  • Understand what cash reserves are and how they can be used for capital improvements.

Plus, much more!

Panelists Include:

Cathi Carlson, RPA, Vice President, General Manager, GlenStar Asset Management, LLC

Tom Noonan, Chief Engineer, Millbrook Properties, Moderator

Anne Persaud, RPA, General Manager, Millbrook Properties

Becky Zitella, Director of Finance and Acquisitions, Millbrook Properties
