Caught Between Dept of Buildings and National Grid
At the beginning of December our plumber self-certified his work (plumbing and gas) but due to a clerical error, the DoB did not grant us the permit number National Grid needs to provide gas service to townhouse. The DoB has fixed clerical error, but in doing so, marked file as plumber not being able to self-certify. We’ve now had two on-site inspections, and have failed both. (They are items, as you might guess, subject to code interpretation.) We want to move in by Feb 18th. But without gas, we won’t have heat. I am very concerned that we are just going to keep failing inspections — not to be paranoid, but I’ve heard stories. Our architect, gc, and plumber have all had their expeditors looking into this, with little action or suggestions on how to help. Any thoughts? Anyway to get National Grid to hook us up while still working of this DoB problem?
