The New York City Department of Buildings enforces building codes and zoning rules, issues building permits, inspects new and existing buildings. The mission of the municipal department is to ensure structures in New York City are safe. The goal is to prevent building fires, collapses, construction accidents, and general overcrowding, all of which occurs in an unregulated housing and construction market. Since July 2014, Rick D. Chandler has served as the departments commissioner. He replaced Robert LiMandri, who had served since 2008. The 1,300-person department also licenses contractors has the authority to halt construction with a stop-work order if builders rack up violations of its various rules. During the real estate boom before the 2008-2009 financial crisis, critics accused the department of prioritizing development over worker safety following a string of fatal construction accidents. This combined with a bribery scandal prompted Limadris predecessor, Patricia Lancaster, to resign in early 2008. -TA
