Source: TRD analysis of initial alteration (A-1 and A-2) permits issued between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2018 by the NYC Dept. of Buildings. Renovations, including interior and facade work, were ranked by initial estimated costs listed on DOB permits, which include general construction, structural materials and mechanical systems. The data includes work permitted by the DOB and excludes work approved by other agencies. It also only includes work where the general contractor is specifically listed on the DOB permit — renewals were excluded. All firms were contacted, but not all participated.
