DESIGN AND PLANNING PROCESS

Project Master Plan: The comprehensive plan for repairing and/or replacing the educational facilities of a school district.

Program of Requirements (POR): Part of the assessment and master planning process that establishes the number and types of spaces a district will need to serve its students.

Design Phase-Schematic Design (SD): In this phase of the project, the building's required spaces are developed and organized into functional groupings represented by bubble diagrams created by the Design Professional. This design includes orientation of building circulation patterns and service systems. The Schematic Design is reviewed and approved by the Project Team prior to staring the Design Development phase.

Design Phase-Design Development (DD): Project phase in which the district and their architect work together to develop the designs for the new or renovated facilities.

Design Phase-Construction Documents (CD): This phase is to prepare documentation that will accurately and precisely convey the design to the prime contractors who will construct it.

Bidding Process: The process by which districts select and contract with firms to conduct work on school buildings. The process includes an advertisement for the work scope, acceptance of binds, an evaluation of bids and bidders, and an award to the lowest most responsible bidder.

Construction: The actual construction of the building beginning with site preparation.

Closeout: Process by which all outstanding invoices are resolved, warranty periods begin and the district and the OSFC end their partnership.
