Stop-work orders in New York City up sharply this year

The New York City Department of Buildings issued 23% more stop-work orders between January and June this year (4,580) than it did during the same period last year (3,738).

Missing guardrails and exposed holes were the most numerous causes of stop orders. The increased rate of stop-work orders (70%) has surpassed that of new construction permits (25%) by almost three times from 2012 to 2016.
