About Vertical Access

Vertical Access provides specialized building inspections and condition reports for architects, engineers, and conservators utilizing efficient, lightweight rigging systems and industrial rope access techniques. This unique approach to architectural investigation offers quick, “hands-on” access without expensive and time-consuming conventional swing stage or frame scaffolding, cranes, and boom lifts.

Vertical Access’ staff is comprised of historic building preservationists, professional structural engineers and technicians, all trained and SPRAT-certified in industrial rope access techniques. Our team specializes in many nondestructive testing techniques such as fiber-optic investigations, ultrasonic thickness testing, acoustic emission, wall tie location and more.

Because effective and intelligent collection of data in the field is essential to providing consistent and useful report documents, Vertical Access developed a tablet PC annotation system, TPAS, to record and document existing conditions. Using TPAS, both graphical and numeric data are entered directly into an AutoCAD drawing in the field using tablet Computers. Digital cameras and camcorders are used to capture images and videos that are automatically hyperlinked to condition codes in the annotated drawing. Learn more about TPAS.
