the 2014 NYC Construction Codes include new enhanced standards to prepare buildings for extreme weather in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and the DOT is organizing training events to inform the industry professionals about these changes.
The seminar will provide an overview of the changes made to the NYC Construction Codes as part of the NYC Department of Buildings Code Revision process and by other local laws passed by The City Council in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, collectively known as the 2014 NYC Construction Codes.
These training events will be held during the months of April May and June in New York City. The complete schedule can be found here.
