Initial Investment

The total cost of complex is made up of the following variables

1. The cost of the Building

  • For accounting purposes all buildings are expected to have a useful life of 25 years with no scrap value. Assume straight line depreciation.
  • Repairs and Maintenance Costs will generally be related to the level of activity in the building.  It has been determined that R&M costs will be a percentage of Gross Rental Revenue.

2. The cost of Airconditioning Plant

  • The useful life of the Airconditioning Plant will vary according to the type of plant purchased and the level of maintenance.  The Plant is not expected to have a material scrap value.  The Airconditioning plant will be replaced at least once every five years  and depending on the level of maintenance may be replaced as frequently as once every three years.  Assume straight line depreciation.  Cost of replacement is expected to be the original cost of theequipment replaced plus an allowance for annual inflation (compounding annually).
  • Airconditioning Plant may have a warranty. If a warranty exists it will be between 1 & 3 years.  During the warranty period there is no repairs and maintenance costs.  Outside the warrant periods R&M costs will be the same amount (determined by a pre-arranged maintenance contract) per annum over the remaining life of the Plant.
