FREQUENTLY ASK QUESTIONS
Most of the times, the answer is Yes. The answer is formally answered in the following Florida Building Code section:
2017 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.”
Most of the time, if you need a building permit, you probably need some type of drawing associated with it. This is especially true of larger projects, buildings and large renovations. Our team of engineers and design professionals is ready to help Build the Future and get your project on paper and ready to be built.
Sometimes however, at the discretion of the Building Official, for smaller projects, small diagrams simply to show were the work is being performed is allowed to be submitted without a Registered Design Professional. Simply call us and we are happy to point you in the right direction as to the best way to get your project underway.
Drawings can take anywhere from 3 days to months to generate depending on the size of the project and the resources available to dedicate to the project. However, at The Zonum Group, we do our best to ensure that your needs are met (as long as they are realistic!!!! )
We get asked this question quite often and unfortunately there is no “one size fits all answer.” There are many moving parts to a project and there are many times when the work being performed is not seen. Seldom are 2 projects identical and each one requires a specialized effort towards that specific project. We gauge the amount of work and determine the amount of time we must dedicate specific resources to and price it accordingly. Larger projects are typically on a price per square foot, but work out to be the same. Please feel free to contact us for a genuinely hassle-free estimate of your project.
We are currently offering free initial consultations at our Cooper City office. Our design team will meet with you to discuss your project or a conference call can be set up to discuss. Simply give us a call and we can discuss your project.
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 the project.
A special inspection is a type of inspection where a design professional must be hired to inspect key structural components of a structure. These special inspections are dictated by the Florida Building Code and by the local Authority Having Jurisdiction. Special inspections are typically required for components such as: Masonry walls, precast concrete, connections, structural steel and many times concrete (depending on the Building Official). Most municipalities have the special inspection forms on their websites. These can be reviewed to know what your municipality requires.
A special inspection for a threshold building is commonly referred to as a Threshold Inspection. These inspections are code mandated when a building is classified as a Threshold Building. These inspections are very detailed and require the implementation of a Threshold Plan that must be approved by the Building Department. All of the main structural components are inspected for compliance with the structural drawings. These components include items such as: Foundations, Concrete Columns, Concrete Walls, Structural Steel, Welds, Bolted Connections, Masonry Walls, Concrete Slabs and so forth. Reports are made for the inspections and are ultimately submitted to the Building Official.
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.
If your project is classified as a Threshold Building, then yes, it will need a Threshold Inspector on site.
