Demolition Waiver

Posted on February, 19 2016

Some procedural changes regarding partial demolition waivers were made with the implementation of the 2014 Building Code.

Prior to these changes, a Construction Code Determination (CCD1) was submitted to Buildings Enforcement Safety Team (BEST) to request a waiver allowing partial demolition of a building.  Now waiver requests are included on the demolition plans.

Waivers may be requested for complete/full backfill and foundation/slab removal.  Specific notes must be included on the demolition plans for the waiver request. Please see DOB service notice for full instructions on the plan requirements here.
