All SCA work in occupied schools takes place on weekdays after normal school hours, on weekends and holidays. Normal school hours are defined prior to the start of construction in a meeting with the principal and SCA project officer.

To perform work after normal business hours in New York City, contractors are required to obtain an After Hour Variance from the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB). Normal business hours are weekdays from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. An After Hours Variance and the hours governing the permit are at the sole discretion of the DOB.
