    NYC Department Of Buildings Unveils Real-Time Map Of After-Hours Construction Work

    NYC’s Department of Buildings just announced the launch of a new interactive that shows after-hours construction work in real time.

    DOB’s new interactive map not only shows the locations of approved after-hours work, it also provides a reason why permits were granted.

    According to a press release, the map shows “the location of all 1,056 building construction projects across NYC where the Department of Buildings has issued permits to allow construction work to proceed outside of normal business hours.”

    Updated daily, the map provides links to the DOB’s Information System (BIS) public database, which offers more information about these after-hour work permits. So you’ll be able to find out what type of work is being done, the reason why the permits were granted, and the hours they’re allowed to work.

    DOB’s new map is essentially a tool that lets you confirm whether construction projects on your block have the proper permits to work at nights and on weekends in New York City. As you probably already know, there’s a requirement of an AHV permit to do any building construction work in NYC before 7:00 am, after 6:00 pm, or on weekends.

    How Does it Work?

    One of the things I like about this map is its simplicity. Click here to check it out.

    The map currently displays 1,056 blue dots throughout NYC, one for each project where after-hours construction is permitted.

    Click on any dot on the map and a pop-up will display information about AHV such as

    • Job Number
    • Bin Number
    • Address
    • Community District
    • Work Type
    • Filing Type
    • Reference Number
    • Start Date
    • End Date
    • Weekend Work
    • Source
    • Reason

    On the right side of the screen, you’ll see a list of addresses and boroughs.

    You can search for an address or location using the “Search” function on the upper right side of the screen.

    Click on the green plus sign next to an address and the map will automatically zoom in to that location and you’ll be able to see information about the construction work right on the sidebar.

    What do you think about the DOB’s new real-time map of after-hours construction work?
