The 2014 Code has introduced new notification requirements for sidewalk shed removals. The notifications apply to those sidewalk sheds which were permitted after 12/31/14.
The permit holder must notify the DOB within 48 hours of removing a sidewalk shed from a jobsite. To notify the DOB, the permit holder must call (212) 383-2550, and provide the sidewalk shed permit number, the date of removal, whether the project was designated a site safety job and whether the completed work was façade-related.
On completion, the DOB will provide a confirmation number. There are no fees associated with the process.
