Underground parking Inspection
Any parking lot containing at least one slab that does not rest on the ground must be thoroughly inspected to evaluate the condition of the elements by an engineer member of the OIQ. Due to the Quebec climate, parking lots are exposed to periodic freezing and thawing cycles, salts and abrasives, which are the main causes of accelerated wear and tear of the elements of interior parking lots. It is for this reason that the RBQ has made underground parking inspections mandatory under the Bill 122.
Our engineers will conduct a thorough underground parking inspection to ensure that the parking lot is free of any deficiencies. The underground parking lot inspection report provided by our Engineers includes a detailed description of the observations as well as recommendations for correcting the defects that could possibly contribute to the development of hazardous conditions, if any.
Any parking inspection report produced includes:
- A detailed report signed by an engineer member of the OIQ and compliant with the requirements of the RBQ.
- Recommendations for remedial action work and recommended deadlines, if applicable.
- A photographic appendix of the observations and the location of the defects on the floor plan.
- Hazardous condition procedures and a description of required corrective work.
Frequency of verification reports
The owner must obtain a thorough inspection report every five years.
