Welcome to the Facilities Planning website!
- SED has retained outside consultants to assist with the engineering portion of project reviews.
- It is imperative that any projects that have already received SED architectural review submit an addendum to address architectural comments in a timely manner.
- Outside consultants must rely on approved architectural documents for engineering reviews related to fire ratings.
- Any projects that have not been signed off by the SED architect due to lack of receipt of an addendum cannot be sent out for engineering review and will remain on the shelf. This may delay project approval.
