SIRS must be performed by a licensed engineer or architect. It is required for all buildings 30 years of age or older with three stories or more. Buildings within three miles of the coastline must have a SIRS completed if they are 25 years of age or older.

How much does a Structural Integrity Reserve Study cost in Florida?

The cost of a Structural Integrity Reserve Study (SIRS) varies based on the number of buildings, their size, the number of units, and the complexity of the study. Prices can range from $2,000 to $100,000.
