(9) The school district or community college district for which any factory-built school building is constructed or altered after July 1, 2001, shall provide for periodic inspection of the proposed factory-built school building during each phase of construction or alteration. The inspector shall act under the direction of the governing board for employment purposes. This subsection does not prevent a school district or community college district from purchasing or otherwise using a factory-built school building that has been inspected during all phases of construction or alteration conducted after July 1, 2001, by another school district or community college or by an approved inspection agency certified pursuant to s. 553.36(2). If a factory-built school building is constructed or altered for an entity other than a school district or community college district, such entity may employ at its election a school district, community college district, or such approved inspection agency to conduct such inspections. A school district or community college district so employed may charge such entity for services at reasonable rates comparable to those charged for similar services by approved inspection agencies.
(10) The department shall, by rule, develop forms and reporting periods for the architect or structural engineer in charge of the supervision of the work of construction in the factory, the inspector on the work, and the manufacturer verifying that based upon personal knowledge, the work during the period covered by the report has been performed, and the materials used and installed, in every particular, in accordance with the approved plans and specifications, setting forth such detailed statements of facts as required by the department.
(11) The department shall require that an insignia bearing the department’s name and state seal and a manufacturer’s data plate be affixed to all newly constructed factory-built school buildings and existing factory-built school buildings which have been brought into compliance with the standards for existing “satisfactory” buildings pursuant to chapter 5 of the Uniform Code for Public Educational Facilities, and after March 1, 2002, the Florida Building Code. The department may charge a fee for issuing such insignias. The manufacturer’s data plate shall, at a minimum, contain:
(a) The name of the manufacturer.
(b) The standard plan approval number or alteration number
(c) The date of manufacture or alteration.
(d) The serial or other identification number.
(e) The following designed-for loads: lbs. per square foot live load; lbs. per square foot floor live load; lbs. per square foot horizontal wind load; and lbs. per square foot wind uplift load.
(f) The designed-for flood zone usage.
(g) The designed-for wind zone usage.
(h) The designed-for enhanced hurricane protection zone usage: yes or no.
(12) Such insignia and data plate shall be permanently affixed by the manufacturer in the case of newly constructed factory-built school buildings, or by the department or its designee in the case of an existing factory-built building altered to comply with provisions of s. 1013.20.
(13) As of July 1, 2001, all newly constructed factory-built school buildings shall bear a label pursuant to subsection (12). As of July 1, 2002, existing factory-built school buildings and manufactured buildings used as classrooms and not bearing such label shall not be used as classrooms pursuant to s. 1013.20.
(14) Nothing in this section shall affect any requirement for compliance with firesafety criteria.
