Local Law 11 Facade Inspections
Local Law 11, enacted by New York City in 1998, requires inspections of exterior façades for buildings over six stories. These inspections must be performed by a Qualified Exterior Wall Inspector (QEWI) every five years. The QEWI will inspect the façade from a scaffold or similar observation platform and inspect exploratory openings in the façade. Becker Engineering is a NYC registered QEWI and can provide Local Law 11 façade inspections and reports. Please contact us to discuss your building’s façade inspection requirements.
