Building Inspections

Inspections depend on what is involved in the project. Simply stated, an inspection is required prior to covering up any part of the construction.

Inspections are performed from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Your plans and permit must be at the construction site and the address properly posted and visible from the street.

The job to be inspected must be accessible. An OSHA approved ladder must be available if needed.

Inspectors are located at the Miami-Dade County Permitting and Inspection Center. Inspectors are available to speak to the public from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m.

To request an inspection, you need your permit number and three digit inspection code. The hours to call for an inspection are from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Inspections requested prior to 4 p.m. are performed the next business day.

To request an inspection, please call one of the following telephone numbers: 786-315-2100, 305-591-7966, or online at Request / Cancel an Inspection.
