DOB NOW: Build Update

Posted on September 22, 2017

As part of an initiative to streamline services the Department of Buildings (DOB) has been incrementally launching self-service online tools for Owners, Design Professionals, Filing Representatives, and Licensees.  Recently antenna and curb cut filings were added to the roster of applications to be filed online.


As of August 28, 2017 all antenna and curb cut filings must be filed online through DOB NOW: Build. Applications submitted to the borough office/HUB are no longer be accepted.

For more information see DOB NOW: Build FAQs.

As a reminder Plumbing, Sprinkler, and Standpipe Job Filings have already gone live on DOB NOW: Build, but it is optional to file online, work can still be filed with the borough office/HUB.

Sidewalk Shed, Fence, Supported Scaffold and Sign filings are targeted to go live October 16, 2017.
