Vertical Assessment Associates


  We are one of the original and longest running inspection companies in Florida. Vertical Assessment Associates is a full service elevator inspection and consulting firm. 
   Founded in 2001, Vertical Assessment Associates is the first choice for elevator inspections in Alabama, Florida, South Carolina and Texas. We have highly qualified inspectors that are local to the areas that they work, only our office is located in Tallahassee, FL. We are registered with the State of Florida Bureau of Elevator Safety & The State of Alabama Elevator Safety Division. All of our inspectors hold the nationally recognized Qualified Elevator Inspector (QEI) certification issued under accreditation by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
    At Vertical Assessments, we believe inspection services really involve more than just the required inspections. Our level of experience enables more accurate reporting of deficiencies and better familiarity with the history of code development. Our services include code research to answer any elevator related questions, and also advising the elevator owner of new State Law code requirements.
   Our company's President Bill Strawn currently serves on several national code writing committees.
