Department of Buildings Same Day Review

The Department of Buildings offers a service that allows registered architects and engineers to file and have their drawings reviewed by a plan examiner on the same day. In order to take advantage of this service, your DOB filing will need to meet the following requirements:

  • May not contain more than six sheets of plans
  • Applicant(s) of Record must appear in person before 9:30 A.M.
  • Examples of applications which meet the requirements include interior-only renovations, boiler replacements and fences. Enlargements, Place of Assembly, and applications with complicated zoning or multiple dwelling law issues will not be accepted.
