At Malcolm Hollis, we work across all property sectors, combining our technical skills and significant surveying resources to provide highly accurate Reinstatement Cost Assessments (RCAs) both for 'one-off' and high volume portfolio instructions.

Most insurance underwriters require a professional evaluation of a building’s rebuilding cost following total destruction.  Known as a Reinstatement Cost Assessment (RCA), their accuracy is crucial in ensuring that property is adequately insured and carrying out an RCA is a highly technical exercise.  Malcolm Hollis’s RCA expertise is industry-recognised, as demonstrated by our involvement in the drafting of the RICS best practice guidance.

Appointing a skilled specialist is crucial to the process – but with extensive experience across all property sectors Malcolm Hollis provides a comprehensive, cost-effective and consistent service across the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe.  We offer particular expertise in portfolio management – a service designed specifically for asset managers requiring ongoing and active RCA management.

Importantly, our RCAs are based on elemental building costs rather than generic average rates to produce a high degree of accuracy.  To maintain accuracy we also recommend that RCAs are reviewed every three years.  RCAs are often carried out in tandem with a building survey – a combined package that saves our clients both time and money.
