Lesson Learned/Best Practice

In Miami-Dade County the smoke evacuation system requires a separate permit. This permit must be pulled by the mechanical contractor even though the work required is mainly electrical. Most jurisdictions do not require a separate permit. 

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Verify with the local permitting department prior to permit submission.
