Abstract:

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Committee on Structural Condition Assessment and Rehabilitation of Buildings prepares standards in three areas: structural condition assessment, assessment of the building envelope, and assessment of buildings for seismic considerations. The first standard completed in ASCE 11-90 Standard Guideline for Structural Condition assessment of Existing Buildings. Current work of the committee includes revising ASCE 11, drafting a standard on assessment of the building envelope, and conversion of various documents of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) related to seismic evaluation of buildings to standards.
