The 2021 collapse of the Champlain Towers condo in Surfside, FL drew attention to the need for regular inspections of older "threshold buildings." A threshold building is defined by the Florida Statutes as any building which is greater than three stories or 50 feet in height, or which has an assembly occupancy classification as defined in the Florida Building Code which exceeds 5,000 square feet in area and an occupant content of greater than 500 persons.
To perform inspections of threshold buildings in Florida, an engineer needs to be certified by the Florida Board of Professional Engineers as a Special Inspector (also known as a Threshold Inspector). Reach out to SEI today for one of our certified FL Special Inspectors to perform a milestone inspection at your property.
