Securing approvals from authorities when fitting out a property is not as straightforward as it seems

Compass provides a one-stop shop solution gives you peace of mind and an assurance that you will not exceed your projected time period, because of delays.

Dubai has one of the world’s most complex processes for securing fit-out permits. This is partly due to the various authorities in the emirate and their differing rules and procedures, be it Dubai Municipality, Tecom, Jebel Ali Free Zone, Concordia DMCC, etc. Building management regulations often differ as well.

In addition, one also has to fill out paperwork at Dubai Civil Defence as well as the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority. Put all these together and you have a collection of variables that could frustrate anybody. This is particularly prevalent in commercial fit-outs. The process of getting approvals (permissions and permits) can take a month or so. Compass Interiors can prepare all the drawings, collate the plethora of no-objection certificates and submit them in a timely manner. It could take longer with a consultant who is inexperienced or remiss. Technical competence is equally important to avoid  rejections or revisions. Compass Interiors, takes utmost care to have all drawings checked thoroughly before submission.

The application for a typical office fit-out would include drawings from the developer, which record power availability, air-conditioning and firefighting provisions as well as dimensions and construction details, architectural drawings of the proposed layout, electrical and mechanical drawings, and the electrical load schedule. All of these must be submitted to the building management and then to the relevant authorities for approval. Only then can one apply for a work permit and commence with the fit-out.

Each authority has its own process and areas of consideration, including staged, interim and/or final inspections. Upon completion of the works to the requirements of all the various inspections and approved standards, a certificate is issued, which would then allow the company to conduct business in Dubai.

Compass Interiors ensures all the documentation, approvals  and inspections are carried out with utmost professionalism. Compass Interiors are experienced with a proven track record, whether the fit-out is for domestic, retail, hospitality or leisure purposes.
