The City of Doral Building Department is responsible for the review, processing, issuance, and inspection of  building permits to ensure that construction within the City complies with the provisions of the  Florida Building Code, the  Miami-Dade County Code of Ordinances, and any relevant  City Ordinances.

The Building Department recognizes the need to turnaround the review of applications quickly, the need of contractors to keep up with their construction schedule and, most importantly, the need for businesses to begin operating as soon as possible.  With that in mind, the Department is always looking for ways to help applicants navigate through the permitting process. 

As a result, the Department offers a host of services available to all applicants:

  • Identifying, registering, and inspecting boilers, unfired pressure vessels
  • Monitoring and processing unsafe structures (properties that have been abandoned, have expired permits, or have been damaged in any way)
  • Reviewing the inspection reports submitted by engineers certifying the structural and electrical soundness of buildings under the Building Milestone Program
