Special Inspections

A leader in restorative architecture and preservation, HLZA has served properties in New York City for nearly 40 years.

As a Class 1 Accredited Special Inspections Agency, we offer inspection services for all types of construction projects in New York. Since the New York City Department of Buildings began mandating third-party special inspections in 2008, clients have sought HLZA to provide projects with an additional level of quality assurance and security.

Our inspections are conducted throughout the duration of a project to ensure compliance with approved plans, specifications, and Building Code standards. We inspect critical fire and life safety systems that are designed to protect the people of New York, holding general contractors accountable for their work.

HLZA offers standalone special inspections services supported by a deep bench of architects, engineers, and building systems specialists who form the backbone of our practice. This multidisciplinary approach provides support across the project life cycle, from initiation to completion, ultimately saving time and reducing cost to our clients. We are committed to providing professional architectural and engineering services, earning our clients’ trust not by reputation alone, but by delivering results.
