When obtaining office fit-out approvals from Dubai authorities, securing approval for drawings is a critical step in the process. Here’s an expanded guide that includes information on drawing approvals: 

Identify the Jurisdiction:

– Determine whether your office falls under the jurisdiction of the Dubai Municipality or a specific free zone authority.

Engage a Professional Consultant:

   Hire a licensed architect or consultant experienced in Dubai’s regulations. Work with them to prepare detailed drawings that comply with local standards.

Preparation of Comprehensive Drawings:

  • Develop detailed architectural drawings illustrating the proposed office fit-out.
  • Include MEP drawings outlining Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing aspects.
  • Provide structural engineering calculations to ensure the stability and safety of the fit-out.
  • Clearly specify materials and finishes to be used.

Dubai Municipality Drawing Approval:

  • If under the Dubai Municipality jurisdiction:
  • Submit the comprehensive set of drawings through the approved channels, whether online or physical submission.
  • Pay the required fees associated with the drawing approval process.
  • Await the review process, which may include feedback or requests for revisions.
  • Facilitate any site inspections deemed necessary.
  • Free Zone Drawing Approval:

If in a free zone (e.g., DIFC, DMCC):

  • Submit the drawings to the respective free zone authority.
  • Fulfill any additional requirements specified by the free zone.
  • Pay the necessary fees for drawing approval.

Coordination with Fit-Out Approvals:

Align the drawing approval process with the overall fit-out approval process. Address any feedback or revisions required by the authorities promptly.

Site Inspections:

Be prepared for site inspections as part of the drawing approval process. Ensure that the constructed fit-out adheres to the approved drawings during inspections.

Final Approval:

Upon successful review and inspection, obtain final approval for the drawings. This approval is crucial for proceeding with the actual fit-out work.

Completion Certificate:

After completing the fit-out work according to the approved drawings, obtain a completion certificate from the authorities. This certificate confirms that the fit-out was executed in compliance with the approved plans.
