Ideally planned for and designed into a building, access systems for ease of continued maintenance are often value-engineered out of important projects, leading to interesting access challenges. Engineers must work with clients to engineer a range of potential solutions that are then evaluated for cost, ease of use and other parameters so that in-house and contracted maintenance can be completed safely and efficiently.
Applicable state and federal standards will be reviewed and case studies, including Islip Courthouse, New York Times Building Mast and the New York Public Library, will be discussed.
Speaker: Kelly Streeter, PE, Vertical Access
