The objective of this forum is to discuss what’s coming with respect to responsibilities and requirements of owners and management. Codes and requirements for developers and construction companies have been in place for a long time. All aspects of construction are inspected prior to a certificate of occupancy being approved. After that, what happens? We want to look at 4 areas:
Codes: Building codes, construction methods and materials were different than they are now. What’s different and why? What is the government’s legislative responsibilities with respect to establishing integrity at the time of construction?

Geo-Technical Impacts: Have environmental changes affected the ground on which the building sit? How does new construction and demolition around existing structures affect them?
Condo associations and HOAs: What best practices should condo associations and management companies employ to preserve the structural integrity and help de-risk sever damage form occurring or worsening without anyone noticing.
What needs to be done?
