Florida Construction Industry Commends and Thanks City and County Building Officials for their Efforts During the COVID-19 Response

The Florida Construction Industry commends Florida’s City and County Building Officials for taking proactive steps to protect their staff and the public from the spread of COVID-19 while facilitating the economic stability of the state’s construction industry. 

The vast majority of Florida’s City and County Building Officials continue to accept building plans and permit applications electronically as well as using technology to conduct building plan reviews and inspections, which allows for adherence to social distancing guidelines. 

The continuity of building plan submittal and review and building inspections is important to the economic stability of the State of Florida during the State’s COVID-19 response.  Continuing to provide these crucial functions will aid in a swift economic recovery for all Floridians after the COVID-19 threat has passed.

The Florida Construction Industry extends its deepest gratitude to Florida’s City and County Building Officials and to their dedicated staff.
