Building Department

After leaving the Planning Division, your application and plans will go to the Building Department, where it will be reviewed by the building, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, flood and structural divisions for compliance.

Each discipline will review the plans and make correction comments where necessary. Once the review has been approved, the application is ready to be processed by the process clerk. She will make sure that the contractor has proper licenses and insurance before issuing the permit. Our online connection to the Florida DBPR, and the Dade County contractors section makes the contractor check easy and timely.
