Fix...Then File

When you’re facing a FISP* filing, remember this mantra: “Fix, then file.” In other words, attend to the condition of your building’s envelope regularly and periodic filing of a FISP report becomes a formality.

If you own a car, you know that it requires regular maintenance—more than just taking it in when it’s due for a state inspection. Complying with FISP should also be a continuous, strategic process of keeping your building’s facade in good repair. FISP filing should be part of a strategy rather than a commodity that’s only sought during each five-year cycle.

We’ve been performing mandated exterior wall inspections throughout New York City since the inception of the first facade inspection ordinance (Local Law 10 of 1980).  Our experienced architects and engineers, including 15 Qualified Exterior Wall Inspectors (QEWIs), can help you navigate and comply with FISP:  investigating the condition of your building’s facade, specifying, and completing necessary restoration work, and managing required filings - to keep you ahead of the curve.
