New York City stands apart as a global city, with a skyline recognized all across the world. People come from all over to ‘make it’ in the Big Apple, and the fields of construction and building are no exception. As we know from years of experience, the same hustle and grit that we’ve known in the construction industry can also lead to potential hazards on site and serious risks for project owners, developers, and GCs. And if you’re new to town, or if you’re used to doing things like the good ol’ days, the city’s compliance landscape can represent one of the biggest challenges to getting your project off the ground.

That’s where we come in! NextWave Safety was founded by 9/11 first responders and long-time NYC construction safety and compliance experts. We’ve provided our safety planning, permit-shepherding, red tape cutting, and 3rd-party safety oversight services on over 300 major NYC projects. We can help your project move forward as planned and finish up safely and on time.

Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you navigate the world of NYC construction and building compliance.

NYC Department of Buildings Compliance Consultations

Looking to break into the NYC construction industry? Not sure how to start based on our overlapping requirements for developers, GCs, contractors, and workers?

New York City may be one of the heaviest regulated cities in the world when it comes to the rules for safety planning, project safety, worker safety, and public safety. And a slip-up can easily result in tens of thousands of dollars of penalties and fines, not to mention a stop-work order from the DOB that can shutter your site.

So, if you’re new to ‘the city that never sleeps’ or just looking to mitigate your risk of being out of compliance, allow NextWave Safety’s veteran team of NYC licensed safety professionals and compliance experts to lead the way.

We can help get your project started or finished by:

  • Assisting with identifying the necessary permits
  • Ensuring you have the correct plans or programs in place
  • Reviewing your supervisor and worker training
  • Connecting you to potential insurers, access management, and safety technologies

And, if you’ve already run into trouble with the DOB, we can help you to get back on track! Give us a call to learn more. 212-933-9071.
