"In construction, the best tool you can have is a reliable and knowledgeable team member, and we have that with Green Light. We have tried other expediters in the past, but only Green Light delivers the level of speed and efficiency we need to be a step above our competition."
Peter O’Farrell, Colgate Scaffolding & Equipment Corp
The DOB - Difficult but necessary
We’ll save the history and boring tidbits and get straight to the point. The New York City Department of Buildings was surprisingly not established to make our lives miserable, but exists to ensure the safe and code abiding construction of all the buildings being developed. Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and yes even Staten Island all have their own specific NYC Department of Buildings locations with unique regulations and processes to follow. Where filings, plan exams, construction permits, CO’s. licensing trades and more are handled and can be obtained.
While the NYC DOB's existence is unquestionably necessary, it is common knowledge that dealing with all the bureaucracy required to successfully navigate it can make a person's head spin. The lines, the antiquated technology, the convoluted processes, the changing code, some of the not-so-friendly employees... Without intimate knowledge of how the DOB operates, even the most patient and determined person interested in filing a project may end up questioning their own sanity by the end of the day!
That's where Green Light Expediting comes in. We know all the ins and outs of the DOB in every New York City borough. With 50 years of combined experience, we have seen and dealt with every scenario imaginable. Most importantly, we have done so while maintaining our Green Light Advantage. A level of customer service unequaled in the expediting industry. Let us show you what that advantage can mean for you and your expediting needs.
