Building Codes Enforcement


Implementation of the Florida Building Code 6th Edition (2017) will occur on December 31, 2017 at midnight. Order your new code books today!

Established in 1999, the UF Building Code Enforcement Program was formed to comply with Florida Statute regulating construction operations.  Today, as a member of the UF development team, we look forward to working with the various construction groups and being an integral member of the team.

Code Enforcement Services

  • Review plans and provide comments for all construction projects at each phase of design
  • Verify workers compensation insurance and required contractor licensing
  • Issue building permits
  • Perform construction progress inspections as required. Issue construction inspection reports as necessary
  • Issue the Certificate of Occupancy at project completion
  • Scan and archive all plans for future reference
  • Provide code consultation to architects, engineers, project manager and contractors as necessary
  • Provide coordination with the State Fire Marshal’s office

We now have a Portal for contractors and project managers to check building permit status, inspections, and plan reviews. You can also request inspections and upload new documents for your active building permits.

Please contact Tony McMahon to have him set up your portal.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
