In 2002, the Florida Legislature created Section 553.791 of
the Florida Statutes titled “Alternative
plans review and inspection”. This statute
enables the owner of a property, or the
owner’s contractor, to use a private company
called a private provider to provide both
building plans review and the required
inspections during construction instead of
that particular city’s building department.
The private provider can do one or both of
these processes, but interaction with the
local building department is still required.
Private Providers are typically utilized for larger projects. Some of the
- Ability to prioritize your project and expedite
the process. Building departments do their plan
reviews in the order that they are received and some
are short staffed and this translates into longer
plan review times. Private Providers are able to do
plans review and revisions faster.
- Ability to work after hours, weekends, and some holidays.
Government employees work standard workday hours,
are off on the weekend, and observe most holidays.
Private Providers work long hours, are
available on weekends, and also on certain holidays.
- Ability to move as fast as the construction takes place.
Local building departments are not able to provide
same day services and a multitude of inspections on
the same jobsite each day. These inspections need to
be scheduled a day in advance and inspection times
could take place at any time throughout the day.
This could cause jobsite progress to be delayed.
Private Providers are able to do inspections and
approve field changes faster and dedicate staff to
be available for your project full time.
Private Providers can
review the following city departments: Building,
Structural, Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical,
Private Providers cannot review the following
departments: Zoning and Planning, Flood, Public
Works, Fire and applicable County Reviews. We would
still need to work with that particular building
department to review the plans but as a Private
Provider / Permit Expediter we are able to expedite the review faster
then a normal review.
Additional benefits for
using Private Provider services are cost savings
offered by municipalities for
the total permit fees.
