The links below include information about checking the credentials of the professionals that one hires, the permit application process, and the requirements of each type of work. This information is provided as a general source of reference for business owners, and should not be construed as complete in terms of the full scope of applicable laws enforced by the Department of Buildings (DOB) or other City Agencies.
