Course Summary:

A building code, as with any other code, is intended to be adopted as a legally enforceable document to safeguard health, safety, property and public welfare. A building code cannot be effective without adequate provisions for its administration and enforcement. This course on “Administration” is largely concerned with maintaining “due process of law” in enforcing the building performance criteria contained in the body of the code. Only through careful observation of the administrative provisions can the building official reasonably hope to demonstrate that “equal protection under the law” has been provided. While it is generally assumed that the administration and enforcement section of a code is geared toward a building official, this is not entirely true. In Florida, building officials, plans examiners and inspectors must be licensed by the state and must also comply with the requirements of Florida Statute 468.

Learning Objective:

  • Applicability
  • Duties and Powers of Building Official
  • Permits
  • Construction Documents
  • Temporary Structures and Uses
  • Fees
  • Inspections
  • Service Utilities
  • Violations-Reserved
  • Stop Work Order
