Vidaris Inc. has launched a new Code Advisory practice headed by former New York City Department of Buildings Commissioner Robert LiMandri.
The services offered by the group will help clients understand complex, newly-adopted building, energy and zoning codes.
The new group’s goal is to maximize their clients’ return on investments by finding opportunities in codes and zoning early in development. In addition, the group will provide other jurisdictions with assistance in the adoption of new codes and enforcement strategies.
The team of experts have the experience to work in any city around the U.S. and throughout the world where the International Building Code (IBC) is used.
“We are excited to introduce our unique capabilities to the marketplace which needs professionals focused on code compliance,” LiMandri said.
“Through our deep understanding of building codes and decades of experience we can help our clients build more efficiently and effectively while creating previously unrealized value.”
“This new group joins over 100 architects, engineers and other professionals adding to the unmatched expertise of our firm,” Marc Weissbach, president and CEO of Vidaris, said. “Across all of our practice areas, the professionals at Vidaris will work together seamlessly to provide the highest level of service to clients throughout the design, construction and post-occupancy stages of any project.”
“Too often projects are sent to the Department of Buildings and it’s already too late to make a difference,” LiMandri said. “Our deep understanding of the multifaceted issues that builders face creates returns for our clients on every level.”
Joining LiMandri in the practice are three professionals who worked in the New York City Department of Buildings HUB and Technical Affairs office.
