Press release date: November 4, 2010

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., - ASTM International Committee E06 is sponsoring a workshop on Conducting Periodic Facade Inspections: A Discussion of the "How To," to be held on April 29, 2011, at ASTM headquarters in West Conshohocken, Pa.

Facade ordinances currently exist in nine U.S. cities. Philadelphia is the latest city to adopt a facade ordinance, which mandates the periodic inspection of building facades for unsafe conditions. Committee E06 has developed ASTM E2270, Standard Practice for Periodic Inspection of Building Facades for Unsafe Conditions, and has formed a task group that is currently working on other standards for fašade inspections. The workshop is timed to coincide with the first set of Philadelphia facade inspections, which are due in June 2011.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a baseline benchmark for facade inspectors to utilize as they perform the mandated inspections and to share tips and techniques in performing the inspection. The workshop will include technical presentations and discussions elaborating in part on papers published in STP 1444, Building Facade Maintenance, Repair, and Inspection. Anticipated topics include: the Philadelphia facade ordinance; purpose and background to facade ordinances; identifying and responding to unsafe conditions; differentiating between "unsafe" and "safe with repair" conditions; addressing historic facades; investigation and data collection techniques; and close-up/hands-on inspection methods including rope access techniques as promulgated in ASTM E2505, Standard Practice for Industrial Rope Access.

Online registration opens approximately eight weeks before the workshop and closes April 22. The fees to attend the workshop will be listed shortly. For more information, visit www.astm.org/e06work0411.htm.
