Building Structural Inspections

Building Structural Inspections Fort Lauderdale & Palm Beach

Building Structural Inspections are also known as a Due Diligence Inspection or structural engineering condition survey. These are physical evaluations of an existing building’s structural systems, components and site improvements. Building condition typically includes items such as site characteristics, structure, roof, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire/life safety, and access and egress. Most commonly Miami building structural inspections are performed prior to a real estate transaction for commercial property. EMA Structural & Forensic engineers utilize the ASTM Standard E2018-99 as a guideline for conducting Property Condition Assessments.

Facility Asset Management observes the condition of structures by examining five different evaluation criteria. The criteria included:


Roof, gutter, downspouts, and chimneys

Stairs, rails, and porches

Exterior surfaces Windows and doors

Evaluators utilize the same assessment criteria found in the Linden Gateway analysis; the foundation of which was based on the University of Oregon’s Community Planning Workshop. The evaluation matrix assigned a numerical rank to the observed condition of the aforementioned housing criteria. The numerical ranking corresponds to the following short explanations; well maintained, moderate maintenance, minor repair, moderate repair, major repair, and not salvageable. A more detailed explanation of the evaluation criteria can be found in the chart in Appendix F – Building Condition Survey Evaluation Criteria and Definitions.

Under the new statute, districts must conduct Miami Building Structural Inspections Condition Surveys (BCS) on a staggered schedule as assigned by the Commissioner in calendar years 2020 through 2024, and every five years on that same five year cycle thereafter. To develop the schedule, NYSED created five groupings within each of the State’s Labor Market Regions (LMR). One for each year. Data regarding the number of instructional buildings per district was used to equally distribute the number of buildings to be surveyed in each BCS cohort year. Next, data from the 2015 Building Condition Survey was used to assign groups with the highest number of buildings identified as ‘poor’ or ‘unsatisfactory’ to BCS cohort years 2020 and 2021.
