Cranes Filings

Starting on Tuesday, July 7, as part of Phase Two of the Cranes launch, all new Crane Notices (CN) transactions must be submitted in DOB NOW: Build (already filed CNs will remain in BIS).  This builds on the prior Phase One release which covered Crane Prototypes (CP) and Crane Devices (CD).  For more information, please see:

To view the presentation that will be used in the training sessions as well as other helpful guides, see the DOB NOW: Build Cranes Resources pages.

For the sake of time and knowing there are different audiences, trainings will all include general  information but each will have their own specific focus.

Note: These are all online web-based training sessions. Sign up below to reserve your spot. Log-in information will then be sent by email the day before the event.
