City of Angola Building Construction Permits

There are many important reasons to obtain required building construction permit(s) for Class 1 and Class 2 structures and to obtain inspections for your Class 1 and Class 2 construction projects. Your construction permit allows the City of Angola International Code Council Certified Officials to reduce potential hazards of unsafe construction and provide for the public health, welfare and safety. By following Indiana statewide code of fire safety laws and building laws, completed Class 1 and Class 2 construction projects will meet minimum safety standards which will be less likely to cause injury to you, your family, and your friends or future owners.

The City of Angola Site Improvement Permitting and Inspection Process complements the system of checks and balances resulting in a safe, completed and compliant Class 1 or Class 2 construction project.

What kinds of construction projects need building construction permits?

Construction Permit requirements for Class 1 and Class 2 structures vary, but generally anything involving construction will need a building construction permit. Constructing new buildings or demolishing old buildings certainly requires a construction permit, but many smaller projects do too. This includes small projects such as swimming pools, sheds and detached garages. For smaller projects such as these, sometimes a construction permit is only required if the project is of a certain size. Construction permits are also required for substantial interior or exterior remodeling of Class 1 and Class 2 structures. Because regulations and requirements vary, it is best to check with your local Building Safety Department before beginning any Class 1 or Class 2 construction project that may require a building construction permit.
