City of Cleveland Building Envelope Ordinance Resource

City of Cleveland Building Envelope Ordinance Resource


The City of Cleveland recently passed a new building façade ordinance on buildings that are at least 5 stories or 75 feet above grade. The requirement begins June 2016 and all buildings 50 years or older must have an inspection filed with the City within one year, while buildings 30-50 years old must complete the same within 2 years; re-inspection every 5 years.

We’ve partnered with K2M Design to provide a team of architects, engineers and building envelope specialist with vast experience completing facility condition assessments throughout the Greater Cleveland area. Our comprehensive understanding of building components, project costing and report development is demonstrated through our assessment of many substantial urban complexes. Downtown Cleveland experience includes:

  • 925 Euclid Ave
  • Cleveland State University
  • Cuyahoga County Administration Building
  • Cuyahoga County Justice Center
  • Destination Cleveland
  • Grand Arcade
  • Renaissance Cleveland
  • Standard Building
  • United Church of Christ Headquarters
  • Waterstreet Condos
  • Westin Hotel

We’ve built a trusting partnership with K2M Design over the years and have significant experience as a team, completing multiple assessment and planning projects together. We are experts in assessing Northeast Ohio building envelopes, with compelling experience having assessed hundreds of millions of square feet for facilities across the country.

We’re here to help Cleveland building owners understand and meet the City’s requirements of the new building envelope inspection ordinance.
