We’re considering installing a steel deck off the back of our parlor floor. The ironworkers (Lopopolo, a rec. from these forums) will “supply a tracking number” but we would be responsible for permits and the permit fee.
Given what I’ve read here, I have a healthy fear of the Brooklyn DOB! Does anyone have thoughts regarding hiring an expediter to manage deck permits? Would the expediters handle everything (other than the metalworking, obviously), or would we need a separate engineer to do drawings? Or should we just bite the bullet and try to do this ourselves?
