Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, a construction equipment permit shall expire 1 year from the date of issuance, or when the permit holder's insurance or street obstruction bond expires, whichever is earlier. Such permit shall be renewable. Such permit must be in effect at all times during which the equipment is at the work site.
An application for the renewal of a construction equipment permit for a sidewalk shed used in connection with the alteration of a building shall be accompanied by a report, acceptable to the department, prepared by a registered design professional who has examined that part of the premises on which the work requiring the use of a sidewalk shed is being performed. Such report shall document the condition of the applicable part of the premises and the scope of work that has been performed thereon since the issuance of the permit and shall provide an estimate of the additional time needed to complete the work.
