LEASE AUDITS

Every lease clause and lease expense can have a material impact on your bottom line. Even the smallest oversight can cost your company thousands of dollars. From the intricacies of common area maintenance, to the details of OT HVAC, base years, experience caps, real estate tax allocations, and BOMA square footage standards, our Team will conduct a thorough, specialized analysis of the specific lease provisions, the operating costs, and the related escalation calculations to identify erroneous expenditures and finalize a financial settlement with the landlord. Our ability to not only perform the audit, but to negotiate the final settlement adds to our best in class reputation which is built upon our 3+ decades of service to our clients.


WASTEWATER AUDITS

Chelepis has utility data for thousands of commercial facilities across the country and the billing methods, rates, and procedures for hundreds of utility providers. The data confirms customers are being overbilled on their wastewater. With this data, Chelepis has developed a proprietary process to conduct very successful audits that reduce our client’s annual sewer spend by an average of 25%. We obtain the savings while our clients maintain normal business operations. Plus, considering this process requires no upfront costs, it’s a true ‘Return on No Investment’.


CONSTRUCTION AUDITS

You painstakingly negotiated the terms of your construction contract. Each line item is carefully defined and approved. But during the hectic building process, specific details such as job cost verification, contract compliance, and payment approval can easily be overlooked. This is why we’re a value-add to your firm. Our experienced construction audit team can help identify whether these breakdowns have occurred, quantify the erroneous billing, and negotiate and recover the overpayments. We specialize in understanding every aspect of construction, including contracting, compliance, project management, budgeting, accounting, change orders, approvals, reporting, progress payments, retainage, and liens. When construction issues arise, we are your solution.


ELECTRICITY AUDITS

After 30 plus years of reviewing audit data, Chelepis has developed in-depth knowledge of the electrical demands required at commercial facilities and how those demands affect operating expenses. We go beyond simply identifying billing errors and rate miscalculations. Chelepis takes a detailed look at your facility’s electrical needs, analyzing the activities and habits that drive your electricity usage, and identifies strategies that will reduce your electricity cost. This engineering-based approach is only possible with a company like Chelepis that has the experience and data to understand what drives a facility’s electricity usage. This proven process has resulted in millions of dollars of savings for our clients.
