Pre-construction surveys are required before construction on job sites for the protection of all parties involved. We document by digital video and photography, all existing conditions on the interior and exterior of any type of structure.  We have surveyed homes, businesses, office buildings, bridges, schools, and dams. These videos are comprehensive and record all surfaces. This is to ensure that there is nothing missing in case of a damage claim. Sometimes people find fault or flaws in normal construction. This may also be called a "Building Envelope Survey". These surveys usually stop a claim from being filed after an initial review of the video.

NEW YORK CITY TPPN 10/88 (Technical Policy and Procedure Notice, 1988)

If you are working within 90' of a Historical Building, you must adhere to this law. This may require you to perform pre-construction surveys, crack and tilt monitoring and vibration monitoring. Before many projects can be carried out in New York City, surveying and monitoring must be completed prior to construction. At Hartford Structural,  you will be provided this service to stay compliant with this NYC Policy. 
The Technical Policy and Procedure Notice # 10/88 (TPPN 10/88) of the New York City Department of Buildings (NYCDOB) requires for surveying and monitoring of all landmark buildings located on a 90’ radius of a job site in New York City. Vibration Monitoring Equipment and Existing Conditions Photographic Surveys are the steps and procedures needed to take when it comes to complying with this strict construction code. Initial construction phases, primarily demolition and foundation work, are known to create and emit vibration shocks that affect nearby structures, where Landmark buildings, due to their years of existence, might well be significantly affected.
