The city has selected Fred Mosher, an architect at Skidmore, Owings &
Merrill, to streamline the city’s construction approval process,
Crain’s reported. In the new post, as deputy commissioner of building
development, Mosher will be responsible for construction plan
examination operations and the issuing of permits in all five
boroughs. He will also be in charge of the Department of Buildings “Get
it Done Together” pilot program, which launched in May and is intended
to eliminate the red tape and speed up the construction approval
process by bringing all the necessary city agencies under one roof to
review and approve projects.

In June, the city said that 385
construction projects were approved as a result of the new program.
Mosher worked at Skidmore for nine years as senior technical
architect. In his 24 years of experience, he has supervised teams of
architects and engineers in the design and construction of some of the
largest government-sponsored projects in the world, including the
international airport in Toronto, Canada, and a military academy in
Kuwait City, Kuwait, as well as the reconstruction of the Cortlandt
Street subway station in Lower Manhattan. [Crain’s]
