 Construction Consultation or Inspection Request

A consultation gives you an opportunity to meet with an NYC Business Acceleration member representing the Department of Buildings. The team member will evaluate your establishment's facilities for compliance with applicable laws and regulations and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. Inspections are conducted to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations. The inspector will help you identify ways to correct any problems discovered. Violations typically are not issued at a consultation, but may be issued during an inspection. If conducting an inspection, the team member will issue objections which must be corrected before final certificates are issued or the job signed off.

Commercial eating and drinking establishments and commercial retail properties qualify for NYC Business Acceleration construction consultations and inspections. Inspections for other commercial and residential properties should be scheduled with the Department of Buildings using  contact information available here. 


The owner, owner’s representative or filing representative may request either a consultation or an inspection.

The following documents must be on the construction site at all times:

  •  Original plans approved by Department of Buildings.
  • All required postings, including work permits, must be displayed prominently.
  • Other documents applicable to your project and construction, as determined by a licensed professional.
