1. Vidaris did not acquire Israel Berger and Associates (IBA)
Vidaris is the married name of IBA and Viridian Energy and Environmental. When IBA and Viridian merged in 2011 we renamed ourselves Vidaris. Vidaris comes from the word "vida" meaning life and "aris" which means the sharp edge formed at the intersection of two surfaces.
2. LPI is Vidaris' sister company
LPI is the engineering arm of our company. LPI performs fitness-for-service, advanced analysis, failure and material engineering, non-destructive testing, commissioning and more. LPI has offices in New York, Massachusetts, Washington, Florida and Australia. Learn more about our sister company here.
3. Vidaris does much more than supertall, curtainwall structures

Every heard of Yankee Stadium? We worked on that! Vidaris' project portfolio includes much more than the commercial and residential skyscrapers that paint the skyline. Check out our projects page to learn more.
4. We have a Testing & Research Facility in Gowanus, Brooklyn
This 13,000 sf facility provides a state-of-the-art "test wall" to perform ASTM air, water and structural tests. We maintain our third party independence by not certifiying products for manufacturers. The facility is open to manufacturers, consultants, contractors, architects and owners.
5. Former Building Commissioner Robert LiMandri heads up our Code Division
Robert LiMandri, the former NYC Building Commissioner, joined Vidaris in 2014 and brought with him strategic leadership, experience and innovation. The code advisory group offers services including filing representation/expediting, assessment/failure investigation, municipal support, code interpretation, due diligence and flood mitigation.
6. We can serve as Architect of Record on Restoration projects
In sum, Vidaris helps make buildings better.
