DOB Construction – Jobs and Permits

What is the process for filing an Electrical Application?

Electrical Applications must be filed and approved by the DOB for specific electrical work to begin. Once work is complete, the Electrical Division must be contacted for a final inspection and review. Once the work is approved and applicable fees are paid, a Certificate of Electrical Inspection is mailed to the licensed electrician. The Elevator Division can be reached at the below numbers with any questions:
