Florida law and regulations require that all new buildings constructed, and modifications to existing buildings, be reviewed and inspected for compliance with adopted building codes and standards. This requires that all University entities, conducting building construction, repair, or modifications on University-owned property, submit construction documents (drawings and/or specifications) for review. Obtain a building permit (see forms) for construction, which, after proper inspection and completion, is certified for occupancy, re-occupancy, or completion. Maintenance projects, not requiring code compliance, such as painting, flooring, equipment replacement, minor repairs, etc. are exempt from the code permitting process with permission of the Building Code Official.
Florida Building Code 6th Edition (2017) went into effect January 1, 2018. The FBC 7th Edition (2021) is scheduled to go into effect January 1, 2021
