About the Building Plan Review Section

Plan Review, a section of the Division of Fire and Building Safety, reviews Class 1 construction plans for compliance with the rules of the Indiana Fire Prevention and Building Safety Commission, including the state-adopted building codes. The work is done by staff of dedicated building code professionals, who work diligently to protect the health and welfare of the occupants of Indiana’s built environment, while also serving as active partners in the ongoing economic development of the state.
