As-needed Building Condition Surveys


As-needed Building Condition Surveys

Various Locations, NY & NJ


About this Project

FST provides building condition surveys for airport, marine, PATH (Port Authority Trans-Hudson), and tunnel facilities. At John F. Kennedy International Airport, FST evaluated the facility; identified structural and maintenance deficiencies; and developed appropriate repair recommendations. Additionally:

FST inspected six 300- to 20,000-gallon hazardous substance tanks and one 130-gallon petroleum tank at JFK Energy Center, a complex central utility plant generating electric power, heat, and cooling water for other airport buildings. FST also prepared a report to meet requirements of the Energy Center Spill Plan for Periodic Inspection required by New York State regulations.

We assessed ten rental car facilities with large freestanding canopies.

Our firm evaluated Delta Airlines Terminal Buildings 2 and 3. A 220,000 sf building, Terminal 2 is comprised of a ground floor for baggage handling; a second floor terminal with 12 boarding gates; and office mezzanines below the high roof of the terminal area. Terminal 3 has a Unit Terminal Building and addition.

FST inspected a former TWA Terminal with a main terminal and two loading fingers. With its unique concrete construction, the building is listed on the New York City List of Historic Structures.

Other assignments involved high mast light towers, radio communications towers, light and traffic poles, and other buildings with floor spaces ranging from 65 sf to 134,000 sf. These included vehicle maintenance facilities, gas stations, equipment storage buildings, offices, utility switching and metering stations, terminals, as well as liquid, food, and fuel storage and distribution facilities. At several locations, structural deficiencies were remedied on an emergency basis.
