We have been receiving many final project submissions over the past few months in which new instructional space is being proposed for a school for which no preliminary submission has been made.  Please note that while our office no longer (generally) requires technical preliminary reviews for construction (A/E), a preliminary Building Aid Review by the Project Manager is required under all circumstances, unless waived by the Project Manager.  Waivers will be granted under limited circumstances and must be discussed with your Project Manager before submission.  In any case where a preliminary BAU review is waived, the submission package must include all items needed for a routine preliminary submission, including the Instructional Space Review, Facilities Needs Assessment Summary and Enrollment Projection study with enrollment projections.
