In the Town of Surfside, applications requiring structural review will be forwarded to a Professional Engineer/MiamiDade Structural Plans Examiner. The engineer fee is $100 per hour and the fee will be due and payable at the time of permit issuance. This is applicable to the structural portion of the review only. If the work exceeds $2500 (or heating/air conditioning repair/replacement of $7500 or more) a certified copy of the recorded Notice of Commencement must be filed with the Building Department.
