Joan Berkowitz, Senior Preservationist and Carolyn Caste, Director of Facade Compliance, Howard L. Zimmerman Architects, Reflections on 35 years of Façade Inspections

Joan Berkowitz, and Carolyn Caste will focus on NYC’s “Façade Inspection Safety Program” (FISP). They will illustrate how this law affects New York’s historic building stock and see examples of the deterioration found above NYC’s streets. More than 12,000 buildings are affected by NY’s façade ordinance, previously known as Local Law 10 and 11. Ms. Berkowitz and Ms. Caste will explain: how the FISP Program works; what an inspection includes; describe some of the most interesting conditions found with examples of concealed deterioration and the interventions designed to correct them.

1.0 AIA LU credit is available for qualifying participants.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
