The Tribal Building Code is modeled upon the Florida Building Code. The Florida Building Code is compiled in four references with the National Electric Code adopted by reference. The four volumes are: Building, which includes energy, accessibility and state agency regulations, plumbing, mechanical and fuel gas.
All structures or buildings whether new or rehabilitative shall be designed and constructed based on the location of the reservation within the state of Florida and according to the wind-borne debris region map.
All NEW incoming permitting applications SHALL be sent to the Tribal Inspector’s Department by the new implemented digital self-service: https://lmp.semtribe.com/EnerGov_Prod/SelfService
Please avoid sending any documents to personal e-mail addresses (will NOT be processed)
Submitted building permit applications will be processed in the order in which they are received. When completed, we will email a validated copy of the permit. This copy, along with the original packet that was digitally submitted must be on site at the time of inspections.
When you are on the page select Guest and register (see screen shot below), enter your email address which we have on file. You will then see a message that your request is being reviewed. Once approved you will be able to log in.
Inspections scheduling hours are Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Inspections requested after 3:30 p.m. will NOT be scheduled and a new inspection request will be required (exemptions may be authorized on a case-by-case basis). If an inspection needs to be canceled, notice must be given no later than 8:30 a.m. the day of the inspection (re-inspection fee may apply).
