Retaining Walls and Parking Structures
DATE: January 10, 2023
TIME: 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
With recent code changes, property owners are required by law to file compliance reports on these two unique structures. This presentation will review different types of retaining walls and parking structures, the maintenance difficulties and inspection nuances, and the details of the code requirements for each.
Participants will be able to identify the maintenance difficulties, inspection nuances, and the details of the code requirements for different types of retaining walls and parking structures.
Participants will be able to define the code assessment and reporting requirements of retaining walls as is required by NYC law since 2007 as well as learn about the requirements to become a Qualified Exterior Wall Inspector (QRWI).
Participants will be able to define the code assessment and reporting requirements that are in the 2022 NYC Building Code as it relates to parking structures.
Participants will analyze different incidents with parking structures in NYC and how DOB is using this information in addition to the data to inform our Code and Rule development.
