A day in the life of a Facade Investigator

The physical characteristics of each building offer a unique set of challenges to facade investigators. When a ground inspection will not suffice or the building itself requires specialized access systems, O’Donnell & Naccarato is equipped to employ unique tools and methods to complete the job safely and efficiently. These photos were taken during a comprehensive facade investigation to be followed by the development of repair documentation.

In urban areas, rope access is often the preferred method of facade inspection for mid and high-rise buildings.

O’Donnell & Naccarato has performed nearly 300 facade ordinance-compliant rope access investigations since 2011, with high elevation descents in excess of 800 feet.
