The “Building Self-Maintenance Permit” service was introduced by Dubai Municipality with the intention of improving the simplicity and effectiveness of maintenance procedures for correcting minor structural faults in buildings.
By converting conventional maintenance permits for construction projects into self-maintenance permits, the ground-breaking service does away with the necessity for municipal engineer inspections. This service expedites and streamlines the permit application procedure and does away with the requirement for permits for routine upkeep and painting jobs.
The Building Self-Maintenance Permit is an online service that enables customers to get a permit to carry out maintenance and repair works for structural faults on their own, according to Eng. Layali Abdulrahman Al Mulla, Director of Buildings Permit Department at Dubai Municipality. To get a self-permit that authorizes these works, use the Dubai Building Permit System, which is available on the Municipality’s website.
Dubai Municipality hopes to provide high-quality and distinctive services with the launch of this new service that will increase customer happiness, streamline the request procedure, and shorten the turnaround time. The new service is a component of the Municipality’s endeavors to provide innovative services and cleverly integrated, ground-breaking solutions that assist the growth and development of the construction sector in the Emirate of Dubai. To ensure the greatest degree of building efficiency and safety, these services work to boost the productivity of the construction sector. This improves the clients’ quality of life, encouraging their pleasure and achieving their goals.
Landowners, companies that perform construction work, and consulting and engineering firms can all obtain the permission right away thanks to the new service provided by the Dubai Municipality. This service is now directed at 1,000 businesses that have registered with the Dubai BPS. The three types of maintenance that the self-maintenance permission request permits are simple maintenance, self-maintenance, and specialized maintenance.
For new construction projects meant to protect the building by correcting its non-structural flaws, the new service eliminates the need for a maintenance permit. These initiatives include painting the interior and exterior and changing the floors. Customers can use the website to submit an application for the new service and acquire a permit for building self-maintenance.
