The staff of Building Safety processes, reviews, and issues all building permits (Improvement Location Permits) within the City of Carmel, and performs all building inspections, applying building codes adopted by the State of Indiana. The division is also responsible for responding to ordinance violations of Carmel City Code.
Our building inspectors are required to maintain updated certifications in all aspects of construction, through tests administered by the International Code Council. The Code Enforcement staff members are also required to be certified. In addition, our staff members take an active role in other community groups and events and in professional organizations.
We participate annually in the City’s Public Safety Day Activities, speak to community groups - such as the Boy Scouts of America, and represent the City as both a member of and sometimes a speaker or panelist for the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis (BAGI) and the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis - Hamilton County Council.
Our office is a member of the International Code Council (ICC), the Indiana Association of Building Officials (IABO), the National Conference of States on Building Code Standards, the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM), and the Indiana Association for Floodplain and Storm Water, (INAFSM).
