Much of Silman’s facade work has been prepared under the auspices of local, state, and federal agencies, making the firm well-positioned to conduct inspections and produce documentation to demonstrate compliance with New York City’s Facade Inspection Safety Program (FISP), previously known as Local Law 11. A more detailed explanation of FISP is provided below.
The firm’s leadership includes multiple licensed engineers who are Qualified Exterior Wall Inspectors (QEWIs). Silman’s experience has already afforded thousands of owners and clients with efficient long-term facade solutions.
The firm’s engineers have performed these services on facades of all different materials, including a broad range of masonry facades. Silman’s expertise in the use of both probes and non-destructive evaluation techniques ensures that clients are provided with the most detailed and accurate results possible.
On projects of special historic significance or those with unique challenges, Silman often collaborates with sub-consultants including laser scanning specialists and industrial rope access firms, especially when dealing with difficult-to-reach exterior elevations.
