Contractors urged to apply for Dubai’s e-building control system

By Staff

All consultancy offices and contracting companies are being urged to register for the new e-building training before the end February 2013 to learn how to apply for the new online services provided by the Building Control System.

This directive came from Khalid Mohammad Saleh, Director of Buildings Department at Dubai Municipality yesterday.

From February 28 this year, the Building Department of the Dubai Municipality will no longer receive requests for structural applications, completion certificates, temporary supply services, change of contractor/ consultant, or deposit refund through the old system, and contractors and consultants will have to apply through the new Building Control System.

After this date the system will be enabled only for the trained companies, indicated Khalid. “This move is aimed at implementing the new Buildings Control System effectively and providing all supervising services for the construction work without the need for visiting any of the municipality centres.

“It also aims to strengthen the viability of this system through training and qualifying technical engineering cadres of consultants offices and contracting companies with joint building permit working on projects for interrelated tasks and responsibilities in the business processes,” Khalid said.

“All technical engineering cadres licensed to operate in the Emirate of Dubai should be registered with the municipality. The registration does not require any test for the engineer or fees. Requests for new licenses should be submitted before March 1, 2013, through DM services online,” he added.
