Brooklyn Construction Company to Keep Building Facades Safe
New York City is home to some of the greatest architecture in the world. Most building will periodically undergo renovations but try to keep the original facade or face of the building in its original style. This keeps the charm while upgrading to house modern living. Even some new construction buildings are trying to emulate a look of an era gone by. One component of this earlier style that accentuates the Big Apple is the fine masonry work on the facade. Carved gargoyles and moulded columns, portrait reliefs and busts stand as a reminder to that classic ambiance.
To preserve the style of older buildings as well as ensure the safety of the public, NYC has instituted the Façade Inspection Safety Program (FISP) “New York City Local Law 11 of 1998” which broadened the scope of duties in relation to “New York City Local Law 10 of 1980” states that each building undergoing new construction and renovation within the five boroughs Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Staten Island must comply with a licensed engineer and registered architect to file an inspection on the aspects of the facade. This includes any potential safety problems that could arise.
