FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TO: OWNERS OF BUILDINGS IN ZONE A
FROM: Thomas Fariello, R.A.
First Deputy Commissioner
DATE: November 1, 2012
RE: RE-OCCUPANCY OF BUILDINGS IN ZONE A
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and pursuant to Mayoral Executive
Order No. 165 of 2012, buildings in Zone A may not be re-occupied
until the NYC Department of Buildings has determined that reoccupation
is permitted. A NYC Department of Buildings green sticker
issued after inspection authorizes re-occupancy of such building. In
lieu of a Department inspection, an owner may obtain a green sticker
upon satisfaction of both of the following:
1. Submission to the NYC Department of Buildings of a certified
report by a NYS licensed professional engineer or registered architect
certifying the following:
There is no standing water in the building;
The building is structurally sound;
All required life safety systems, including but not
limited to, fire alarms, sprinklers, standpipes,
carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, are intact
and in good working order;
If there is an elevator, at least one working elevator
serves all floors; and
The building is otherwise safe to occupy.
2. The building has electrical power or a working emergency
generator to power all required life safety systems.
ALL SUBMISSIONS
All submissions including certified reports in accordance with the above
shall be submitted to the following email address
reoccupyzonea@buildings.nyc.gov or to one of the Department
Borough Offices.
For any variation from the above requirements, the NYS licensed professional engineer
or registered architect must first submit a request for variation determination to
reoccupydeterminations@buildings.nyc.gov.
