As Indiana’s economy continues to improve, the number of projects submitted to the Division of Fire and Building Safety has increased. For your planning purposes, please allow up to 8 calendar days for your Construction Design Release.

Remember you do have an option of an early foundation release to start below-grade work early. Also remember, your accurate and complete design documents help streamline the process.
