The Department organized a series of Committees to assist with drafting revisions to create the 2014 New York City Construction Codes.
The New York City Council Committee on Housing and Buildings passed the 2014 Construction Codes as Intro 1056-A December 19, 2013. It was signed into law as Local Law 141 on December 30, 2013. The bill marked the culmination of the multi-year revision cycle updating to the New York City Construction Codes (Administrative Provisions, Building, Mechanical, Fuel Gas, and Plumbing) to the 2009 International Code Council Codes (I-Codes) with New York City amendments.
Local Law 141 of 2013, in combination with Local Law 41 of 2012 (Plumbing revisions) reflected the hard work and dedication of over 300 participants including volunteer committee members, government employees, elected officials, representative stakeholders, industry professionals, and labor leaders. See below for listing of committee members.
