It is the mission of the Building Division to protect the public health, safety and welfare by ensuring compliance with the Florida Building Code. It is the responsibility of Department Staff to review construction plans to help ensure that proposed projects will meet Florida building code requirements and all local ordinances, to issue all required permits, to conduct inspections throughout the construction process and to ensure that projects are constructed in accordance with approved plans and in a manner that complies with Code regulations.
We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the Florida Building Code.
The Florida Building Code was enacted to ensure the safety of homes and other structures built throughout the State. It is the duty and responsibility of every member of our community to comply with these codes by obtaining the proper permit before beginning a construction project.
