For any given apartment complex in the U.S. (if you want to get specific, I am wondering about NYC), how does one track down the building's specifications. I'm talking about specs as detailed as the thickness of the walls (this is really the detail I care about).

I assume one would first have to know what company built the complex, and then one would have to consult some database of theirs for the specs. I am not sure though. How does one go about finding out something like this?

  • $\begingroup$ I'm asking this for research for a book, so the building is fictional, in case that's relevant. How might I find out who the owner of the building is? @SolarMike $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @SolarMike Yeah, that's the gift of being God xD However, let's say the owner is one of those; how would my character figure that out, and where would they go from there in order to figure out the wall thickness? $\endgroup$
