Sidewalk Shed Removals

Under the 2014 NYC Construction Codes, the Department of Buildings (DOB) must be notified after sidewalk sheds are removed.

If a sidewalk shed that was permitted on December 31, 2014 or later is removed, you must notify the DOB within 48 hours after the removal from the job site.

To notify the DOB, call (212) 393-2550 and provide the following information:

  • Permit Number
  • Date removal was completed
  • Indicate if it was a designated Site Safety Job
  • Indicate if the work was facade-related

You will get a confirmation number from a DOB representative upon notification. You do not have to pay any fees.
