Does you evaluation include elevators? The best elevator evaluation manual is a consultant. I’ve had very cool experiences with Lerch Bates. They are in La Canada, California. They have saved my client a lot of construction money in buildings with 30 year old elevators.
Structurally, are you planning to do a dynamic analysis for wind/seismic?
Architecturally, my mind races to fire
safety. Fire-proofing, sprinklers, exit stairs, areas of refuge, etc.
I wish I could point to a manual for these items, but am not aware of one which
has the current research included (especially fire-proofing after the

Since that was fed, could it possibly been a UFC document? If so, then maybe Steve can try there, though I don't believe many federal or DoD/military structures are "high rises."
Good luck, Steve.

This may not be helpful, but about ten years ago, we did some Fed work to do a long term evaluation of the Defense Intelligence Agency bldg in DC for purposes of budgeting maintenance over 10-15 years. I don’t remember the name of the guideline we followed, but there was some specific form or outline document we had to use. Sorry, that is the only clue I have. (otherwise I am “clueless” J )

I am trying to find documents (for example, guides or manuals) pertaining to the engineering evaluation of the condition of existing high-rise buildings (structural, as well as mechanical, electrical, and other aspects).
Could anybody give me some advice on where to look for such documents?
