Florida SB 4-D
Building Safety Law

Florida’s condo safety landscape has seen significant shifts in the past year. These changes began with 2022’s SB 4-D, which was hastily passed in response to the collapse of the Champlain Towers South Condominium in Surfside, Florida. Originally focused on inspections, reserves, and transparency, the updated SB 154 of 2023 introduces key changes for condominiums and co-ops three stories or taller, as well as clarifying multiple items from the previous law.



McLaren’s construction engineering team offers full-service crane engineering services, from planning and plan/calculation preparation to in-house expediting to handle all filing and permitting needs.

From large infrastructure projects to buildings and specialty structures, our firm can determine the most optimal and cost-effective engineering solutions by assisting with means and methods of construction, planning, logistics, and project management for building projects across the country. This ensures jobs stay on time and within budget while providing the best solutions from the ground up.

Our construction engineering services include rigging, steel connection, shoring, crane engineering, and site safety.

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.

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

Expert Insight

Mass Timber
CLT + Glulam Building

As engineers, we play an important role in shaping the built environment – from developing structural designs with a sensitivity for architectural aesthetics to choosing the best material types for those designs. 

Versatile, attractive, and sustainable, the potential of mass timber in new construction across Florida is capturing the imaginations of building professionals and sustainability advocates alike. Whether building tall structures or sprawling long-span complexes, the use of mass timber enables the development of high-performance buildings that are exceptionally strong, have a lower carbon footprint than concrete, are lighter and stronger than steel, and are able to achieve similar fire resistance ratings.

Specialty Market
