The purpose of structural condition assessment of buildings is to identify the health of the structural elements so that a program can be put in place to address the deficiencies before they become a safety concern to mitigate the risk of structural failure, and to assist the owners in the decision making process regarding budgeting and scheduling for the necessary repairs in a timely manner.
In response to the recent structural failures caused by delayed maintenance and budgeting for timely repairs, different municipalities such as Miami-Dade County of Florida, have put in place programs and guidelines to help building owners become proactive in the health of their buildings. Although the guidelines may vary in some details, all intend to reduce the risk of failure.
