Description
This program is based on the New York City E-Designation Program. An E-Designation is a NYC zoning designation that indicates the presence of an environmental requirement pertaining to potential environmental issues, including Hazardous Materials Contamination, Window/Wall Noise Attenuation, or Air Quality impacts. Impacts these requirements can have on building design include vapor barriers on building foundations, specification of noise-attenuating facade materials and windows, and maintaining clearances for exhaust stacks. This presentation explains the Office of Environmental Remediation (OER) e-designation process, and describes the design elements that are required to obtain OER and DOB approvals.
