Keeping it Clean

The Cooperator recently published Keeping it Clean, Your Guide to Exterior Maintenance and Upkeep which opined that “living in New York City can be something of a dirty job. Thanks to the hustle and bustle of big city living, the task of cleaning off months (or years) of accumulated grime and dirt from the exterior of a residential building takes much more than just a scrub-brush and a bottle of Windex; it requires professional help. The task is not just a labor-intensive job—it also calls for extensive knowledge of building materials, cleaning products and cleaning methods”.

Yarmus Engineering, P.C. is available to consult with clientele regarding the cleaning, ownership, maintenance, and repair of their structures. Please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you or your clients regarding any questions they may have about their structures.

Keeping the Sky From Falling

The Cooperator recently published Keeping the Sky From Falling, Construction Sheds, Exterior Scaffolds and Pedestrian Safety which stated “walk down any street in the city and you’re likely to go under or around one of the ubiquitous steel-and-plywood structures that shade Gotham’s sidewalks, more often than not festooned with wheat-pasted posters for everything from the hottest nightclub parties to new movies opening this weekend. They’re called construction sheds, and these blue or green plywood platforms boosted up above street level by crisscrossing metal poles and girders are usually installed on buildings in the midst of an exterior repair program”.

Yarmus Engineering, P.C. is available to provide inspection, consulting, and safety services regarding scaffolding and similar working and protection platforms. Please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you or your clients regarding such matters.
