Biller Reinhart performs threshold inspection services during the construction of buildings or parking garages classified as “threshold buildings” as per Florida Statutes Chapter 553.71. Threshold buildings are those that are more than three stories or 50 feet in height, or which have an assembly occupancy classification exceeding 5000 square feet in area and an occupant content of greater than 500 persons. Threshold inspection involves project site inspections during construction to ensure conformance to the project drawings, specifications, and the threshold inspection plan issued by the Structural Engineer of Record.
Our Team includes several professional engineers licensed as Special Inspectors. Structural engineers must be licensed Special Inspectors (per Florida Statutes Chapter 553.79) in the state of Florida to be qualified to perform threshold inspections services.
Clients for such projects include architects, engineers, building owners, developers, and local government agencies (school boards, the State University System, local aviation authorities, cities, and counties).
