The next expansion of the NYC Development Hub will provide online scheduling for virtually all inspections through a new service called Hub Inspection Ready. This system will go live in 2014.
Not only will this electronic system make it easier to schedule inspection appointments using our website – but it will expand the services offered through the NYC Development Hub. Hub Inspection Ready will offer more precise inspection scheduling and improve inspection tracking and notifications. In addition, this new system will further standardize the electronic checklists used by our inspectors for improved, agency-wide consistency – and allow industry members to certify certain objections electronically, eliminating a need for costly re-inspections.
