our expertise on fisp compliance:

Inspections: Building facades must undergo periodic inspections by a licensed and Qualified Exterior Wall Inspector (QEWI) every five years. These inspections are comprehensive and involve close scrutiny of the entire facade, identifying unsafe conditions.

Critical Examinations: Facade Critical Examinations consist of the close-up review of the facades, roofing, appurtenances, and balcony handrails.

Report Submission: Following the inspection, a detailed report outlining the findings and any necessary repairs or maintenance recommendations must be submitted to the NYC Department of Buildings and made available to building owners.

Our engineers are equipped to make effective evaluations and repair solutions by providing objective and technically sound facade assessments and repair designs on both historical and contemporary structures. Whether it's preserving the charm of the past or ensuring the longevity of the present, our assessments guide us in formulating precise repair solutions. Count on us to safeguard the integrity and aesthetics of your structure through a harmonious blend of expertise and innovation.
