Structural Integrity Inspections



Structural Integrity Inspections by Kipcon

With evolving regulations and community obligations, structural integrity inspections have become paramount. In addition to the desire to keep their buildings safe with regular inspections, many  communities are now being mandated to conduct structural integrity inspections for their residential buildings. Kipcon stands at the forefront, not only in shaping the CAI Reserve Study Standards, but also in driving important, momentous legislative changes for the community association industry nationwide. Recently, our efforts bore fruit with the signing of new legislation by Governor Phil Murphy, placing additional procedures and regulations on the inspection, evaluation, and maintenance of residential housing structures in New Jersey.

Mr. Frumkin’ s efforts on this task force, combined with hundreds of participants from around the country, helped to create a public policy paper that details the vital intersection of reserve studies, structural integrity, and maintenance.

What is a Structural Integrity Inspection?

Structural integrity inspections, mandated by New Jersey law Senate Bill S2760 (and its companion legislation, Assembly Bill A4384), are pivotal assessments of a building’s structural integrity. These inspections ensure compliance with stringent regulations to safeguard residents and investments. The legislation imposes additional procedures and regulations for the inspection, evaluation, and maintenance of residential housing structures.

The communities across New Jersey that are being impacted by this new legislation are now required to conduct periodic structural inspections, enhancing safety standards and mitigating risks for the Association. Kipcon’s expertise in navigating these regulations ensures communities meet their obligations while prioritizing the safety and well-being of their residents while protecting their assets.

    Building inspections

    A building inspection is a meticulous evaluation of a structure’s condition, encompassing its safety, functionality, and adherence to regulations. It involves thorough scrutiny of various components, such as structural integrity, electrical systems, plumbing, and HVAC. These inspections are pivotal for identifying potential hazards, defects, or deficiencies that may jeopardize safety or longevity.

    By detecting issues early, Kipcon’s inspections facilitate informed decision-making for maintenance or repairs along with ensuring regulatory compliance and safeguarding occupants. Ultimately, Kipcon’s expertise in building inspections contributes to the safety, functionality, and sustainability of structures, protecting investments and enhancing community well-being.

    Inspections Using Drone Technology

    While we’ve been in the industry for years, our team never misses a chance to stay on the cutting edge of the newest developments in inspections and evaluations.

    Drone inspections, facilitated by Kipcon Engineering, revolutionize traditional inspection methods by leveraging cutting-edge technology. These aerial surveys provide comprehensive visual data, offering unparalleled insights into a structure’s condition, accessibility, and potential hazards. By capturing high-resolution images and videos, building inspections utilizing drone technology enable thorough assessments of areas that are challenging to reach or unsafe for manual inspection. This innovative approach enhances efficiency, accuracy, and safety while reducing costs and time associated with conventional methods.

    Whether assessing roofs, facades, or expansive properties, drone inspections empower informed decision-making, proactive maintenance, and regulatory compliance, ultimately ensuring the longevity and safety of structures for communities served by Kipcon.

    Roof Inspections

    Building inspection drones can easily access hard-to-reach areas of roofs, such as steep slopes, high-rise buildings, or complex roof structures. With high-resolution cameras and sensors, drones can capture detailed images and data of roofs, allowing for thorough inspections without requiring manual inspections or risking human safety.

    Facade Inspections

    Drones equipped with specialized cameras can capture high-definition images and videos of building facades, allowing for close-up inspections of building envelopes, cladding, and facade components. This enables engineers and inspectors to identify potential issues such as cracks, leaks, or other structural defects, which may not be visible from ground-level inspections.

    Structural Inspections

    Building inspection drones can assess the structural integrity of buildings, bridges, and other structures. By capturing images, videos, and data using advanced sensors and cameras, drones can quickly and accurately inspect structural elements, such as beams, columns, and foundations, for signs of damage, deterioration, or wear and tear.
