      DCRA Permitting Dispatch

      DCRA Issues Reminder about Construction Work Hours

      The Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) reminds
      Permitting Dispatch readers that construction work in the District is only
      allowed Monday through Saturday, 7 am to 7 pm.

      Work outside these hours requires an after-hours permit.

      There will be situations when DCRA cannot grant your request to work
      after-hours (7 pm to 7 am Monday-Saturday or any time on a Sunday).

      DCRA is charged with protecting neighborhood vitality and quality of life.
      As business districts and neighborhood are closer together - and sometimes
      overlap -- there are situations where after-hours permits cannot be
      granted.

      Title 12 of DC Municipal Regulations, Section 105.1.11(7) and 105.1.11.1,
      prohibits after-hours permits when work:

       Is in a residential zone.
       Is within 500 ft of a residential building or site, such as a
      single-family dwelling, apartment, motel, or hotel.
       Is of a non-emergency type, including interior work.
       Has already caused complaints about noise and other issues from citizens
      or interested parties such as ANCs (Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners).

      Your application for after-hours work must be made on a building permit
      application, under Section A, items 11, 12, 19, and 20.

       Clearly state the reason for the request and the starting and ending
      times.
       Give the scope of work you want to do at those times.
       If your application for after-hours work is the result of a request from
      DDOT, DDOE, WASA or another agency, DCRA requires written notification
      from the agency and may request additional agency justification.)

      Variances/modifications to provisions of the District Construction Codes
      can be considered when there are practical difficulties and undue economic
      hardship involved in meeting a code requirement. DCRA reviews the
      application's ramifications in-depth before granting a
      variance/modification.
