Commercial / Multi-Family Permit Requirements

To apply for a Commercial, Institutional, or Multi-Family permit, please complete the following steps:

  1. Obtain a Construction Design Release (CDR) from the State of Indiana Department of Homeland Security, Division of Fire & Building Safety at
    If the project does not require a CDR, we will need a statement in writing from the IDHS.

  2. Click the Online Permitting link below and complete an application. Please note, you will need to register the first time you login.

  3. Once we have reviewed your application, you will receive an invitation to upload your building plans to Project Dox, our plan review software.

If you are in doubt whether your project will require a permit, we can help you make that determination.
Please contact our office anytime between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 317-571-2444,
or contact our Inspector on Call between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. at 317-571-2481.

One permit is typically issued for any given construction project, and all work being done is covered under this permit. The Builder of Record on the ILP assumes responsibility for all aspects of construction performed, from the actual types of work being done to the scheduling and completion of all required inspections, and payment of all fees.

If you have any questions throughout this process, please call the Building & Code Services office at 317-571-2444.
