Obtaining New York City Building Permits, Approvals, and Certificates of Occupancy

Learn how to tailor your construction projects to comply with New York City Building Codes and regulatory agencies, such as the Fire, Housing Preservation and Development, and Parks Departments. Examine recent procedural changes that have an impact on the design and project management process. Topics include the effects of zoning on a project, Department of Buildings filing and permitting procedures, egress calculations and layout for public assembly spaces, basic plan requirements for submission to regulatory agencies, and types of applications. Discuss the city violation process, and learn how to obtain approvals/permits in a shorter amount of time.
