Builder Pavement Plans or Checklist in Lieu of Plans Required Before Requesting an Inspection

Before you can apply for an inspection for BPP (Builder Pavement Plan) applications, you should have already uploaded to DOB Now, the BPP plans or the Checklist in Lieu of Plans. This change came into effect last August 19, 2016, so we should be well aware.

Upload your BPP Final survey and the BPP plans or Checklist in Lieu of Plans before requesting inspection.  The documents should be uploaded separately and users must ensure proper document type selection from the drop down menu on the site. If the document type is not uploaded, the site will show an error message and you will be unable to request for an inspection.

For BPP inspections requested before August 19, you will now be required to upload aforementioned documents before the inspection can commence. Failure to upload the documents before the actual date of inspection, then the result of the inspection will be marked as Fail – Final and you will be asked to upload the BPP documents and request for another inspection.

If you need assistance with BPP or any other DB documents, then feel free to contact us at or call our numbers at 212.938.8000 and we will be glad to assist you. For any questions or inquiries, you can also visit our website at

Owner’s Representative: What I Need to Know

An owner’s representative is a well versed professional aimed at providing the owner with the peace of mind that their construction project will be done on time and on budget. An Owner’s Representative is the person responsible for the construction and serves as the representative of the owner.

Individuals who are not familiar with the construction processes often hire an owner’s representative, or an OR, to help oversee any construction project they may have in mind. In this way, their interests are preserved and protected. The owner’s representative often becomes the owner’s eyes, ears and even brains of the project. They manage, oversee and even make decisions to ensure that the project will be completed successfully with no hitches. Even if it sounds simple, the duties of an owner’s representative are not.

During the course of the construction project, the OR may be required to do a lot of things in order for the project to be completed. Aside from being completed on time and on budget it also needs to come out as the owner desired or pictured it to be, both functionally and aesthetically. The ability to handle contractors and other pertinent individuals within and outside of the construction proper is a must in order to achieve such. The OR must be able to successfully handle any and all issues that may arise before, during and after construction.

P.Wolfe offers owner’s representative services to our clients. Our experts will handle the necessary requisites for the project from beginning to end. From handling paperworks necessary to handling contractors and workers for the project, P.Wolfe will be there, every step of the way until the project is completed, signed off and turned over to the owner’s satisfaction.
