Can the home owner go with the Architect/Expeditor to the Dept. of Buildings meetings to get the drawings approved ?
Need the architect drawings approved by the dept. of buildings to get permits to work on adding a new floor to a house. Doing a job in Queens NY.
This is my first contracting job where we had to get an architect involved. Not sure about how to answer the home owner. I would think the owner can sit in on the meeting and listen.
Does anyone know how long each meeting with the DOB inspector usually is alotted for ? Like are they set up for half hour each and you get what ever you can get crossed off in that time? This house has 16 objections and it seems that at each meeting they are only checking or crossing off 2 items at a time. Does that mean it will take 8 meetings to get approved drawings? Is this normal? What is the average amount of meetings an architect goes to with the DOB before getting approved drawings?
I got contracted the job back in the beggining of August when the drawings were submitted to the DOB. Can’t start yet. How long does it take to reschedule a new appointment with DOB ?
I’m just trying to understand this architect /expeditor stuff.
