New York City’s Department of Buildings’ Façade Inspection & Safety Program (FISP)’s 9th Cycle requirements – in effect since February 20, 2020 – are the largest and most robust set of changes in the history of FISP. Building owners and managers must be certain they are aware of all (and oftentimes expensive) conditions, in order to ensure compliance and save time and resources.
Are you aware:
• What FISP is, how much it costs, and what needs to be done have vastly changed and expanded
• A grade to roof level inspection is now required on every 60-foot interval of façade that faces a publicly-accessible area
• New requirements now mandate investigative probes along every 60-foot interval of cavity wall facades every other cycle (i.e. Cycle 9, Cycle 11)
• What credentials are necessary for a Qualified Exterior Wall Inspector (QEWI)
• That the definition of a publicly-accessible area has expanded – and what it now includes
Join PVE Engineering’s Jamison Morse as he presents the answers to these and other commonly asked - and overlooked – questions. You will leave with a solid understanding of the rules and key components of the FISP updates and understand what and how to plan and invest to meet the minimums of the law’s new requirements.
