Facade inspection

Download our brochure

 

On March 18, 2013, a regulation to improve safety in existing buildings came into effect. The MANDATORY INSPECTION requirements of this regulation are outlined in Chapter VIII of the Safety Code, Buildings.

 

FACADE MAINTENANCE

Environmental stressors such as humidity, wind, pollution and freeze-thaw cycles affect urban buildings and rural dwellings alike. These stressors can result in a number of deficiencies, ranging from surface dirt to structural damage that could eventually lead to the complete ruin of a building.

 

CONSULTATION AND DIAGNOSTIC

Our experienced engineers, technologists and specialists perform building condition assessments in order to identify problem areas and control risks.

 

Our assessments generally include the following:

    - Conducting interviews

    - Reviewing documentation

    - Identifying and locating symptoms

    - Evaluating the severity of problems

    - Designing building intervention plans

    - Conducting general and detailed inspections

    - Drafting verification reports

 

REQUIREMENTS

Every 5 years, owners of buildings comprised of 5 or more storeys are required to obtain a verification report from an engineer or architect. This report must state whether or not the facades of a building present hazardous conditions and provide recommendations for any deficiency with the potential to develop into a hazardous condition.
