A permit is the document that issues consent to move forward on a building project. Qualified professionals have examined the impact a project is likely to have on available resources and infrastructure. Roads, bridges, water, sewer and fire services are examples of the services a project may impact. The permitting process begins with the review of plans and ends with a Certificate of Occupancy or Certificate of Completion. The City of Miami Beach Building Department administers most of the processes for projects occurring within the City of Miami Beach.
To process your permit, the City of Miami Beach offers a variety of services:
Appointments As Built Requirements Drop Off Plan Review Email Permitting Expedited Plan Review Low Voltage Alarm Labels Municipal Electronic DERM Plan Review Notice of Commencement Phased Permit Pre-Submittal Consultation Private Provider Structural Consultant Peer Review Walk Thru
