In addition to the various engineering services which we provide, BGM Engineering is a certified by the NYC DOB Special Inspection agency. We perform special inspection services for projects which we have designed and for projects designed outside our office.

Our Special Inspection team ensures that the building structure has been constructed in accordance with the filed with DOB drawings.
The field of Structural Engineering is rapidly changing. Codes are revised every 3-5 years, design software is updated monthly, and new products flood the market every day. Needless to say, it can be a challenge as a practicing structural engineer to stay ahead of all the changes. This is where engineering peer reviews come in.
Reviews are more reliable when performed by peers with the same professional background and expertise. Engineering peer reviews may be performed for quality assurance, risk management, constructability, cost, or code compliance.
