Most of the times, the answer is Yes. The answer is formally answered in the following Florida Building Code section:
2020 Florida Building Code Section [A]105.1 States:
“Any owner or owner’s authorized agent who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any impact-resistant coverings, electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system, the installation of which is regulated by this code, or to cause any such work to be performed, shall first make application to the building official and obtain the required permit.”

The “best” design is very subjective. Some clients are only interested in cost. Some clients are only interested in uniqueness, specialty design, functionality or achieving an aesthetic goal. Some clients want something in between. The best design comes with understanding the client and his/her needs as they pertain to the project. Once we have an understanding, we can tailor the project to the specific needs of each client and maximize result of the project.
A threshold building is typically any building that poses a larger risk to the loss of human life during an emergency. One of the Florida Building Code’s intents is to minimize or virtually eliminate the risk of loss of life. Several sections of the Florida Building Code are designated to Threshold Buildings. However, a Threshold Building goes above the Florida Building Code and is defined by Florida Law.
Florida Statute 553.71 (12) states:
“Threshold building” means any building which is greater than three stories or 50 feet in height, or which has an assembly occupancy classification as defined in the Florida Building Code which exceeds 5,000 square feet in area and an occupant content of greater than 500 persons.
Essentially 1 of 3 conditions must occur for a building to be classified as a Threshold Building.
1.) The building must be greater than 3 stories in height.
2.) The building must be greater than 50 feet in height.
3.) The building has an Assembly occupancy with more than 5000 square feet of area AND an occupant load of greater than 500 persons.
If any of these 3 conditions are met, the building is classified as a threshold building.
