    • Reduces approval time from 4-6 weeks to approximately 1 week. The City of NY allows Architects to self-certify projects & bi-pass a formal plan examination review in order to expedite a project. This process is subject to random audit by the Dept. of Bldgs. “Technical Compliance Unit”. In the event this project is audited, additional work and fees will be required to remedy this situation. The client will be responsible for these fees and hereby agrees to pay these additional expenses which will be charged to the credit card on file. The client agrees to indemnify and hold harmless NYDA for additional project costs & delays to a project incurred because of the deferral of a plan examination.

    • Directive 14 review

      allows the final inspection to be performed by a private inspection agency rather than by the Department of Buildings. A Directive 14 filing may be done by this office, which will allow for final inspection of the work by an Architect or Engineer, (registered as a NYC Special Inspection Agency) instead of the Building Dept. Under DOB policy effective 07/01/08 the Architect responsible for the final inspection must ensure that the work is signed off and that permits remain active during the duration of the project. The inspecting Architect is subject to fines & revocation of filing privileges with the City of NY, if the project is not signed off or the application withdrawn within one year. By requesting a Directive 14 filing, the owner agrees to maintain an active permit during the duration of construction and to promptly obtain required plumbing & related signoffs. The client further acknowledges that if the project exceeds 1 year or if permits become inactive, NYDA reserves the right with no further notification to the client to withdraw from his role as Architect responsible this project. This action may result in violations or fines from the Dept. of Bldgs. and a Stop Work Order being place on the project. Directive 14 applications are also subject to random audits and inspections by the DOB technical compliance unit. This process is subject to random audit by the Dept. of Bldgs. “Technical Compliance Unit”. In the event this project is audited, additional work and fees will be required to remedy this situation.

The client agrees to indemnify and hold harmless NYDA for additional project costs & delays to a project incurred because of the use of Directive 14 filing.
