A Certificate of Occupancy documents the legal use of the building and is obtained by filling an Alteration Type 1 application. The process for closing out the application is coordination that encompasses resolving all violations, closing out all open applications, having all inspections conducted and passed, assembling all required paperwork, and reviewing with the Department of Buildings.

Whether the building may be new or old, the process to obtain a new C of O has many facets and CODE coordinates these into a comprehensive list that becomes the go-to document for the sign off process. The C of O process involves intense coordination between various parties in order to achieve an approval.
