New HPD Referral Program
A new local law requires the DOB to report any uncorrected Class 1 elevator violations to the HPD. HPD-involved risks include tax liens, litigation, or forced repair from city-approved contractors.

New Construction Regulations
With new legislation, construction superintendents will need to be thinking about their newly expanded scope of responsibilities.

New Elevator Violation – The EVCAT5

This new elevator violation is issued for failure to file a Category 5 load-bearing test and imposes a $5,000 fine for every non-compliant device. Though only certain devices require Category 5 tests every 5 years, it is crucial to be aware of what is needed for your elevators.
