Required Documents for Construction Sign-Off
The following documents must be completed and submitted to the Department in order to ensure all work is in compliance with the New York City Energy Conservation Code (NYCECC) and before the Department can sign-off on al completed work:
- TR8: The progress inspector must certify that all progress inspections noted on the original TR8 and on TR8s filed with in any post-approval amendments (PAAs) have been satisfied. The progress inspector must sign and seal the TR8, certifying that inspected work complies with the approved drawings
- EN2: The progress inspector must certify that the building as constructed matches the values in the last-approved energy analysis
When Construction has Changed from the Approved Drawings
Design applicants are required to update their drawings, including the energy analysis, when conditions result in a design change during construction (Section ECC 103.4). These drawings, including the energy analysis, must be submitted to the Department for approval.
If construction differs from the last-approved energy analysis prior to sign-off, the original preparer of the energy analysis must prepare an as-built energy analysis using the values actually used in the construction. The energy analysis must demonstrate compliance with the NYCECC and the preparer must sign and seal the analysis, certifying that the work is in compliance. The progress inspector must then certify in the EN2 form that the values in the professionally certified energy analysis match the existing construction.
If the construction changes result in a building no longer complying with the NYCECC, as demonstrated by a failed energy analysis, the progress inspector cannot certify on the EN2 from that the work is in compliance and the application cannot be signed-off.
