NYC Pushes Through Massive Overhaul of Construction Codes

The New York City Department of Buildings today marked the official passage of major legislation in the City Council to update the city’s Construction Codes.

The revision to the Codes contains over 600 major updates, and thousands of smaller changes, intended to improve safety for New Yorkers, and incorporate the latest in building technologies.

The new Codes use the highest international standards for the design, construction and maintenance of buildings as a baseline, while continuing our city’s proud tradition of implementing additional enhancements to ensure we have among the strongest building regulations anywhere in the world.
