NYC Buildings Department Hires New Deputy Commissioner
Timothy E. Hogan now oversees emergency and safety operations, complaint inspections, and construction accident investigations.
Timothy E. Hogan is the new deputy commissioner of enforcement for the New York City Department of Buildings, with Buildings Commissioner Robert LiMandri announcing Hogan's appointment on July 10. Hogan, who has a background in law enforcement, oversees the department's Enforcement Division, including all emergency and safety operations, complaint inspections, and construction accident investigations.
Hogan had been chief deputy U.S. marshal for the Eastern District of New York since 2005, where he was responsible for the security for five federal buildings, 39 federal district judges, and 150 assistant U.S. attorneys.
"Increasing the safety of our construction sites requires smart, strict enforcement, and Timothy Hogan has the expertise and experience to raise building standards citywide," LiMandri said. "For more than three decades, Timothy has focused on protecting the public from some of the country’s most notorious criminals, and his unique skills will help us target industry members who cut corners on the job site and put New Yorkers at greater risk. By managing investigative and security teams at the highest levels of law enforcement, Timothy understands the importance of public safety and the need to consistently evaluate and improve operations. I am very proud he has joined our team, and I am certain his decisions will make a difference on every construction site throughout the city."
The department's duties include enforcing the city's Building Code and Electrical Code, issuing construction permits, inspecting properties, and licensing trades.
