Project Checklists contain project-specific details as they apply to the scope of work of the project to provide compliance with the NYC Construction Codes and other regulations. This section contains a list of tasks to assist with compliance.
Construction Drawings: Make sure Department approved drawings clearly convey project’s scope and that the contracted work reflects the approved and full scope of work. If the scope is modified after approval, verify if changes need an amendment – refer to BC section 903.1.2.
Insurance Requirements: Make sure to comply with the insurance requirements for General Liability insurance, workers compensation and disability insurance. If necessary, update the General Liability insurance when required.
Special/Progress Inspections: Make sure to check that the owner has hired the Special Inspection Agency and their details are submitted – a requirement for obtaining a permit. Notify Special Inspection Agency of work progress to maintain schedule.
Construction Drawings: Make sure work conforms to approved drawings. However, minor variations are allowed and certain changes may require an amendment.
Scope Modification: Verify if changes need an amendment
Site Safety: The Licensed Master Plumber or Master Fire Suppression Piping Contractor must maintain their work site in a safe condition during construction and must minimize the risk of accidents and fire.
Special Inspections: Make sure to coordinate work schedule with the Special Inspection Agency to ensure these are completed as required by stage of work.
Department Inspections: Make sure to perform required inspections – self-certification or request Department inspections – by stage of completion, and obtain sign-off for the completed work.
Self-Certification: If self-certifying the required inspections, make sure to submit a notice of intent to self-certify, which may be audited.
