Plan Review & Inspection Process
The plan review time is dependent on all of the aforementioned documentation and completeness of the permit application. The application will be reviewed for compliance with all pertinent laws and will be approved or rejected if all laws are not complied with.
Not more than 60 calendar days after the date of such notification, where such additional information has not been submitted or the permit has not been purchased, the application and/or permit shall become null and void.
Where the application and/or permit has become null and void, an applicant may again apply, and such application shall be processed as though there had been no previous application.
Required inspections have to be made in order and prior to concealment. Any concealed work that required an inspection will have to be totally removed. All permits require a final inspection when the work is completed.
Beginning June 1, 2018, Inspection requests called in prior to 2:00pm will be conducted the next business day. Requests after 2:00pm will be conducted the second business day. Friday inspections must be requested and called in by 2:00pm the Wednesday prior.
The permit holder can call the office between 7:00am and 8:00am to talk to the inspector in that discipline to request a window of time.
When a violation of a building case or the approved plan is not followed, a violation notice will be issued. When in the opinion of the Building Official, projects become unsafe during construction or when work is started without a permit, a STOP WORK ORDER will be issued and the work must be stopped. In some cases a plan review revision may be required; in this case the revision must be submitted and approved prior to rescheduling the inspection that failed prior to proceeding with the work.
To cancel a scheduled inspection, call the Building Department between 7:30am and 8:00am at 954 970-3004. Inspections cannot be scheduled until any re-inspection fees are paid.
Note: Approved plans, permit card and previous red tags (If any), must be posted in front of the job-site for each inspection requested.
Final inspections will be made upon completion of the work, approval of required documentation, and the approval or other governmental agencies having jurisdiction.
After all the required inspections are completed and all required documentation for the permitted work is received, a CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY or CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION will be issued.
A building of structure shall not be used for its intended use until the appropriate certificate is issued.
