The Concrete Enforcement Unit (CEU) supports the Agency’s oversight of all concrete structural placements, inspections of concrete formwork, auditing of concrete testing laboratories, performance of concrete parallel testing and the review and approval of concrete mix design and inspection reports. CEU works to ensure public and worker safety of all concrete testing at construction projects throughout e safety New York City.


Permits that Exclude Concrete Operations

Applicants may be ready to obtain a permit to begin work before they are ready to begin concrete operations. The Department allows applicants to obtain a permit that authorizes work but prohibits concrete operations until concrete requirements are met.

Without submitting the TR2, TR3, and concrete subcontractor information, applicants may receive an initial permit and one permit renewal that exclude concrete operations.

A job cannot be signed-off unless all applicable concrete requirements have been met, including submission of the TR2, TR3, and concrete subcontractor information.
