DOB now mandates this new signage for projects

In case you haven’t noticed, construction site plywood citywide now has some new government-mandated flare. Those short-lived info matrix signs are now replaced with something a tad more sleek. The Departement of Buildings just rolled out the upgraded posters, which feature more information alongside a snazzy architectural rendering of the work and/or building in progress. Fences or sidewalk sheds permitted after July 1, 2013 are required to comply with the law.

Here is the new code, pulled from the DOB website:

Project sites with construction fences or sidewalk sheds permitted on or after July 1, 2013 must meet new signage requirements that emphasize the type of work underway and highlight the project’s contact information.

The new, standardized construction fence panel and parapet signage designs consolidate permit postings and contractor signage – and improve the overall appearance of job sites for communities.

The new law also requires that all other signage be removed and posted within the construction site – except for standpipe signs and any signage required by law to be posted outside the site. In addition, these temporary structures must now be painted hunter green.
