Strengthening Cost Estimator [XLS, 73 kb] - This tool, developed within a collaborative lobby group which ICW is part of, is aimed at providing body corporates and owners with an indicative understanding of the full costs of strengthening - not just the construction costs (as big as they are). It is intended as a guideline only and does not replace formal costing or financial advice. The Excel file provides a sheet for a building costing and a separate sheet for an apartment costing. The calculation cells are locked to avoid unintended changes to formulas. However, there are instructions in the Notes if you wish to unlock these cells and make changes to the formulas.
