Mechanical plans are required in South Florida for many reasons. Mainly these plans are put in place to provide a detailed scope of work for the contractors performing the work on your building. Having a detailed set of mechanical plans will not only allow you to pull a permit from the local building department but also give your contractor detailed instructions to work on the mechanical systems of your building. It also helps you to get accurate bids when price shopping the repairs required on your building. Without these plans, contractors may send you bids that are lower than usual by cutting corners and not abiding by the local building codes.
