DOB launches Stop Work Order program
On November 25, 2008, Buildings Commissioner Robert LiMandri launched a new program that outlines Department policies for rescinding Stop Work Orders. This program is designed to streamline communication between the Department and the construction industry and better ensure construction sites are maintained in a safe manner. As part of this program, a DOB Stop Work Order Coordinator will serve as the point of contact for a job site’s project executive and help provide industry members with the requirements to lift the Stop Work Order. This program, which becomes effective December 15, 2008, applies to all buildings under construction and demolition participating in the Department’s Site Safety Program that receive full Stop Work Orders.
