Online Building Departments

With over a decade of experience in providing fiscally responsible services to public agencies PDCS can easily help you outsource your building department needs. These services are now easier to implement than before with PDCS’ Online Building Departments.


PDCS introduces our most innovative service yet, Online Building Departments. We are integrating our building department services with online functionality to allow our clients to receive instantaneous service. This  service allows contractors, residents, and clients to conveniently access permit records including plan review comments and inspection results through our site. As well as allows builders to easily download the required permit application and submittal guidelines as well as request inspections directly from our online department.

Perfect for Small Communities

This service is ideal for smaller communities that lack the space for a physical building department. PDCS provides the online portal for your residents and the staffing required –including building official, plan reviewers, inspectors and permit technicians – all based out of our Orlando office. With this innovative approach we can streamline the workload, increase efficiency and reduce the expense of operating your own building department while creating a customizable virtual department.

With PDCS operating your building department you can:

  • Reduce the impact of inconsistent building activity in your community
  • Meet demand for building services without having to increase and decrease staff
  • Improve customer service levels and resident satisfaction
  • Increase turn-around time
  • Minimize the liability and risk factors

Beneficial for Educational Facilities

PDCS combines our education facility construction service with our online department to create a convenient option for educational facilities. This virtual service allows for contractors to contact PDCS directly regarding permit applications, inspection requests and results. Each virtual building department can be customized to meet the needs of your facility.
