eBuild Help: Getting Started with the eBuild Permit System

The eBuild Permit System allows you to submit applications and construction drawings electronically, saving you printing costs and trips to the Permit and Information Center. Using the system is easy with our guidance.

To get started with eBuild:

Step 1 – Create an Account

If you already have an account for scheduling inspections online, you can use the same account for your eBuild projects. Go on directly to Step 2.

If you don't have an account:

  • Create an account using a simple form with 4 pieces of information:
    • Your name
    • Your email address
    • Your primary phone number
    • An alternate phone number (optional)
  • We use your email address to identify your account.
  • We'll email you a 4-digit access code.
  • Your account is immediately available for you to use.
Step 2 – Log in to Your eBuild Account

Log in to your eBuild account using your email address and the 4-digit access code.

Your eBuild account page will show a list of your active projects. You can monitor the status of your projects, find out what needs to be done and take any action required.

Your Account

See eBuild Help: Your Account for details.

Step 3 – Start a New Project

See eBuild Help: New Projects for complete details on how to start a new project.

All eBuild applications and other documentation are submitted in PDF format. The eBuild applications are available for download on the eBuild Help: New Projects page and on the New Project page inside eBuild. You save a local copy, complete the application and save the answers into the PDF form.

We are currently accepting applications through eBuild for Commercial, Multifamily and Residential projects for:

  • New construction, additions and alterations
  • Erosion Prevention
  • Sign Permits
  • Solar Permits

If you have questions regarding submitting your project through eBuild, contact our staff at 541-682-5505 or by email at eugenepermitapplications@ci.eugene.or.us.

Additional information regarding submittal requirements for specific project types is also available online.

Multiple File Selection Not Supported

Your web browser does not support selecting multiple files for a single upload. This will make it inconvenient to upload your plan drawings which must be organized with one sheet per file.

We recommend that you use a browser which supports multiple file selection to make uploading plan files easier:

Multiple File Selection Tip

Your web browser supports selecting multiple files for a single upload. How you select more than one file depends on your operating system.

Selecting Multiple Files

Holding down the Ctrl key (the Command key on a Mac) while clicking on each file usually works. To select multiple files that are continguous in a listing, you can usually select the first file, then hold down the Shift key and select the last file.

Step 4 – Complete Your Project with eBuild

After you have successfully uploaded your application and plans and indicate your application submittal is complete, our staff will evaluate your application to verify we have what we need to begin review. You'll be notified within three business days if any additional information needed or that your application has been accepted for review.

When your application is accepted for review, a project coordinator from Building and Permit Services will be assigned. You will receive a notice from the project coordinator with details about what to expect and what fees need to be paid.

See eBuild Help: Project Life Cycle for details on what to expect.

You can now use eBuild to complete every part of the permitting process through to the completion of construction. You can:

  • Pay Fees
  • Assign Contractors
  • Submit revised plans and Deferred Submittals
  • Submit required forms
  • Schedule Inspections

You'll received all correspondence about your project via email. All notices will be in PDF format to make it easy for you can save them for your records.

Our goal for eBuild is a completely paperless process.
