Engineers in New York can anticipate more work opportunities at city schools, thanks to a new state regulation requiring that five-year building condition surveys for occupied school buildings be conducted by licensed engineers or architects.

This N.Y. Education Department regulation set November 15, 2001, as the deadline for all eligible schools to complete the building-condition surveys. The surveys require an engineer or architect to serve as the inspector and submit a written report on the review.

The regulation also states that annual visual inspections do not require a design professional and can be conducted by a certified code-enforcement official.
