Get an Expedited Plan Review

Have you applied for a building permit for a commercial project over 20,000 square feet in size and would like an Expedited Plan Review? An Expedited Plan Review is one that takes place outside of The City's normal regular hours. The City of Miami provides this service in order to help speed along the permitting process.

Expedited plan reviews can be requested for the following disciplinesBuilding, Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing, Structural, Flood Plain, Environmental Resources, Planning, Zoning, Resilience & Public Works and Code Compliance. If you need to request an expedited plan review for fire, you can visit this page. 

NOTE: This service carries a fee of $350 per discipline for a maximum of four (4) hours. 


Collect Documents

  • You must already have an application submitted in iBuild and you will need that application #/BD# to proceed.
