According to Vienna’s building code § 128a house owners are obligated to maintain building records.
In practice regular inspections shall be carried out in due time for building parts whose condition deterioration could cause a risk to life or health of humans (in particular bearing structures, facades, roofs, guardrails, handrails and balustrades, main corridors and escape routes as well as technical fire protection installations, etc.). This concerns all new, additional and reconstructed buildings with more than two main floors.
The maintenance measures must be also documented for existing buildings (building code § 129, paragraph 2). The objective of the building records is to detect possible, safety-relevant deficiencies in time. FCP offers this service individually or in connection with design and consulting services.
