Inspections - Automated Inspection Request System Overview
AIRS Telephone Number
Call (321)

The City of Melbourne is pleased to have available an automated building and fire inspection information system which was developed to efficiently place accurate information at the fingertips of contractors, inspectors, and homeowners.

By following a simple touch-tone telephone procedure, customers can request an inspection, obtain the results of an inspection, and check the overall status of a building permit.

In order to assist the customer in obtaining timely inspections, Building Department personnel will attempt to perform morning and afternoon inspections. Requests called in up to 7:00 a.m. will be performed between 8:00–11:30 a.m. when possible. Requests called in between 8:00 a.m. and noon will be performed between 1:00–3:30 p.m. when possible. Inspections can be canceled during these same time frames. Every attempt will be made to complete an inspection when requested, however, the time of the inspection cannot be guaranteed.  In an attempt to be fair to those individuals requesting inspections, only one inspection per permit, will be made per day.

Work should be complete and ready for inspection at the time the inspection is scheduled.  If the work is not ready or does not conform to Code or the approved drawings, a reinspection will be necessary. A reinspection fee will be charged each time it is necessary for the inspector to make additional inspections until the work is approved.   Please see "Pre-inspection Requirements" for details on what work is necessary to be completed prior to an inspection.



For reinspection of any building or structure where the building was not ready for inspection, the building contractor shall pay the following reinspection fees:

Note First reinspection $ 25.00
Note Second reinspection $ 50.00
Note  Third reinspection $ 100.00

This reinspection fee schedule also applies to Fence, Swimming Pool, and Roofing Permits.

Note For Electrical, Plumbing, Gas, and Mechanical Permits, the reinspection fee is $10.00

For Sign Permits, the building contractor shall pay the following reinspection fees:

Note First reinspection $10.00
Note  Second reinspection $25.00
Note  Third reinspection $50.00 and for each reinspection thereafter.

  When work which requires a permit is started without first obtaining a permit, all fees for said permit shall be doubled in accordance with Florida Building Code.
