Local Law II/98 Facade Inspections
Merritt Engineering Consultants, P.C. has assisted hundreds of Building Owners throughout New York City in fulfilling the critical responsibility of maintaining their building’s façade in “safe” condition.
We begin with a hands-on, non-destructive inspection to determine the existing conditions of all exterior walls and identify potential safety hazards. We then prepare and file a written report with the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB), detailing any necessary repair strategies.
Our reports and repair programs not only comply with DOB requirements, but are also useful tools for planning and budgeting purposes by allowing Building Owners to prioritize the required repairs and avoid costly emergency restorations down the line.
As your Local Law experts, we will assist you to:
- Identify the current status of your façade
- Coordinate filings with the DOB
- Develop an appropriate repair strategy
- Implement the required repair program
- Avoid costly violations and emergency repairs
