"Our goal is to try to bring properties back to some semblance of what is normal," said Michael Lingerfelt, an Orlando-based architect and vice president of the Florida chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
There's no expense to the state, which would merely need to vest local building officials with the authority to deputize the certified inspectors.
Lingerfelt and 48 architects and engineers in Florida received special training and certification from the state of California to assess damage.
Lingerfelt said he envisions that pool of architects acting as sort of second responders following a disaster. The first responders -- emergency personnel such as paramedics -- would get people out of harm's way while the next group would be able to assess a structure's habitability. They wouldn't make any financial assessments for insurance purposes or decisions regarding aid from the FEMA, he said.
The California program had been around for a few years. The professionals certified in that program, including Lingerfelt, got their first taste of action following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Louisiana contacted California for building inspectors to assess structures there, a duty that took on greater importance because nearly all of the local building officials in some areas fled the storm and were slow to return.
Lingerfelt said representatives from the Florida chapter of the American Institute of Architects were working with emergency management officials in the administration of then-Gov. Jeb Bush following the 2004 hurricanes.
"We're going to meet with the governor and lay it at his feet," Lingerfelt said.
