Parapet Inspections

Effective January 1, 2024, all New York City buildings with parapets fronting the public right-of way are subject to an annual parapet observation report. Owners are required to keep parapet observation reports for at least 6 years and to make them available to DOB upon request. Severud Associates staff are experienced in the inspection and evaluation of parapets, including the determination of the causes of observed deficiencies, performing stability analysis, and describing methods of repair.
