Exceptional service for all your permitting needs

Private Provider Services

Also known as "third party inspectors"

Private provider is an alternative to plan review and inspections in lieu of local building departments as allowed per Florida Statutes 553.791.

How does it work?

When using a private provider, the permit has to be processed through the local  jurisdiction, however if we are part of your team we review the plans for code compliance and ensure that the plan is correct before submitting  for permit, reducing the number of resubmissions considerably. For the inspection portion, you coordinate your inspections with our office to meet your schedule providing you greater flexibility and better time management. We then communicate with the local building departments to provide results. The process is slightly different in each jurisdiction.

Will anyone else review  the plans?

Yes,  private provider only covers the building department portion. The local jurisdiction will still review for Zoning,  Health, Fire , and  any other local requirements. Our company provides full coordination with these entities to obtain permits with a minimum number of review cycles.

Will I get a reduction on permit fees by the  county/city for inspections and /or plan review if I use private provider?

Unfortunately no, most  jurisdictions  are funded  solely by permit fees, therefore  they need to receive all possible fees to maintain operations. Local jurisdictions may choose to audit the review and/or inspections as they wish therefore all audit expenses will be covered.

Do I have to wait for the county/city inspector to  audit before covering my work?

No, by State Statute once the inspection is done by our inspectors you can proceed with construction. The audit can occur after the  work is covered.

Why should you choose us as your private provider?
