With a switchover to an automated DOB project system, New York City now requires a more rigorous up front paperwork filing process. When it comes to windows and doors, understanding the specification and testing thresholds being requested by the DOB versus what’s being requested by the passive house community adds another layer of complexity. In this talk we will provide a quick overview of how to navigate a few of the “front loaded” window filling requirements for NYC projects.

Learning Outcomes:

-NFRC, ASTM, AMAA, CE, and Passive House. What are they and which ones are applicable to code compliance and DOB filing?
