Parking +

New York Required Parking Garage Inspections

New York State’s “Condition Assessments of Parking Garages” rules apply to parking garages falling under the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code. Under Title 19 – Part 1203, it is mandated that parking garage owners in the State must have their garages inspected every three years by a professional engineer who is licensed and registered in New York State to identify any deterioration or unsafe conditions within the structure. Distinctive vulnerabilities of parking structures, such as accelerated deterioration from factors like overloading, environmental conditions, and de-icing pose a risk to public safety with potential for partial or total collapses. As such, regular inspections, preventative maintenance, and rehabilitation measures ensure the structural integrity and safety of these facilities.

Structural Inspections +

Early signs of deterioration are not always obvious to the untrained eye. As such, detailed visual, hands-on, and sometimes probe inspections by expert structural engineers are imperative. 

Whether a high-rise, residential complex, commercial building, or industrial facility, structures of all sizes should undergo periodic assessment to maintain their overall health and safety.

Our robust Albany engineering structural inspection and investigation services can identify deterioration to determine the structural well-being of a building and its individual components. Additionally, we perform root cause analysis and help provide short and long-term remediation, rehabilitation, and repair support.
