The foundation of the New York City building code is fire safety. This code, and most other national and international codes, regulate how buildings are protected from fire. Unfortunately, as many buildings get built, corners get cut and serious deficiencies are left hidden. These invisible problems are often discovered when cooking or smoking odors or noise spreads easily between apartments. The absence of required fire construction details leaves buildings less safe as fire safety deficiencies can  pose life threatening situations. In addition to life safety concerns, more immediate problems like building department violations and insurance company limitations must be addressed. The correction of these problems in occupied buildings is often complicated, and takes a carefully orchestrated plan and effective communication with stakeholders. BLA provides the  services needed. BLA also has experience with post Fire Reconstructions, assisting owners with estimating and insurance documentation and reconstruction. Get in touch for more info.
