At Balcony1, we understand the significance of complying with current regulations such as SENATE BILL 721 and 326 EEE for the safety and peace of mind of property owners in Los Angeles County. With over 20 years of construction and design experience, our expert inspection team has completed hundreds of projects within various divisions for multifamily properties. In this article, we will be discussing one such successful project in Burbank, highlighting the importance of these inspections, and showcasing how our pro team ensures compliance for a safe living environment.
A Brief Overview of SENATE BILL 721 and 326 EEE
SENATE BILL 721 requires that all exterior elevated elements (EEE) in multifamily buildings be inspected by a licensed professional every six years. This includes balconies, decks, and stairways among other structures. The main purpose of this bill is to ensure structural integrity and prevent potential tragedies caused by structural failure.
Similarly, SENATE BILL 326 focuses on condominiums and common interest developments (CID), requiring periodic inspections for exterior elevated elements as well. This bill mandates that visual inspections be conducted at least once every nine years, and if any issues are discovered, a more thorough inspection must be performed.
Both bills emphasize the importance of maintaining the structural integrity of these elements, as their failure can lead to serious accidents or even loss of life. Our team at Balcony1 is dedicated to providing top-notch inspections and ensuring that all our clients’ properties comply with the latest regulations.
Our Successful Burbank Project: A Case Study
Project Description and Compliance with SB326
Our recent project in Burbank involved conducting an EEE inspection at a multifamily property located on 220 S Oakland Ave, Pasadena. Our client required an inspection for compliance with SB326, focusing specifically on their balcony and deck structures.
Expert Inspection Process
Our expert team began by conducting a thorough visual inspection of the exterior elevated elements at the property. This process included:
- Assessing the overall condition of balconies and decks
- Evaluating the stability and integrity of support structures
- Checking for any signs of damage or deterioration
- Identifying any potential hazards or areas requiring further investigation
Following the visual inspection, our team concluded that there were no visible signs of damage or structural issues in the aforementioned elements. As a result, no additional inspections were deemed necessary at this time.
Maintaining Compliance and Ensuring Safety
To ensure continued compliance with SENATE BILL 721 and 326 EEE, our team provided the client with a detailed report outlining our findings from the inspection. This report serves as a crucial document for maintaining compliance and providing peace of mind for both property owners and residents alike.
In addition, our team suggested a regular maintenance plan to help prevent future issues and maintain the structural integrity of the exterior elevated elements. This proactive approach is essential for ensuring the safety of residents and avoiding costly repairs down the line.
