Starting October 1, 2014, revised New York City construction codes will go into effect. In addition to changes from the established NYC Department of Buildings Code Revisions process, the 2014 Construction Codes will reflect local laws passed as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
To assist with repairing the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, the city issued Local Law 31. The local law, which allows the waiver of fees required by city agencies such as the Department of Buildings, was intended to be in effect until April 30, 2013.
On behalf of KM associates, we hope that you and your families have made it through Hurricane Sandy safely. The storm has caused widespread damage. If you were affected by the hurricane, you may need to repair your building immediately.
