ABOUT THE EVENT
All parking garages under the jurisdiction of the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code must undergo a periodic condition assessment to help ensure structural integrity and user safety. This is a recent mandate resulting from a new rule that went into effect in 2018 requiring owners of parking garages to retain a professional engineer to perform the inspection and submit a report to the local authority having jurisdiction. In this presentation, we will review the impacts of this new rule, explore how qualified engineers go about investigating parking structures, and discuss strategies for maintaining and rehabilitating these structures.
After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Understand inspection requirements for parking structures in New York.
- Learn how qualified engineers conduct condition assessments of existing parking garages.
- Discuss typical distress mechanisms for these structures and possible failure modes.
- Recognize approaches to rehabilitating parking structures.
