Building Permit information via Smart Phone

In late February of this year, New York City Department of Building Safety announced that it would be providing QR codes on its building permits so that anyone walking past a construction site could obtain information related to the property and construction via smart phone. While most of this information is already available on the department website, this instant access will certainly lead to increased complaints and increased litigation. Notice the QR code in the upper right hand corner of the work permit.

It won't be long before smart phone access to such information will be available all over the country.
