An After Hours Variance is required if you are seeking to perform construction activity before 7:00 am, after 6:00 pm, or on the Weekend.
To request an After Hours Variance, you must:
Applicants can request variances for up to 14 consecutive days of work using the same PW5 Form, provided that there are no changes to the work.
Applicants must pay an initial filing fee as well as a daily fee for each day of after-hours work.
Initial Filing Fees
|Days of Work||Fee|
|1 – 3||$100.00|
|4 – 6||$200.00|
|7 – 9
|10 – 12||$400.00|
|13 – 14||$500.00|
$80.00 per day
Contractors and tradespeople can renew AHV permits online through The HUB. Simply fill out an online form, pay by credit card and print the new AHV permit via BIS. Users must be registered to electronically file documents at The HUB to be eligible to use this renewal service.
This service is not available for projects where the scope of work has changed, the tradesperson or contractor is no longer in good standing with the Department, or the job application has an issue or concern that must be corrected.
Two important After-Hours Variance policies remain in effect and will be enforced:
AHV fees are assessed according to each requested calendar day. For example, a request to work from 11:00 pm Monday through 2:00 am Tuesday falls on two separate calendar days.
Applicants may request an AHV permit for any number of days within a window of 14 consecutive days. Any days beyond this 14-day window must be part of a separate AHV permit.
