Module 4 – Schematic Design Guidelines Update

(The following information replaces Project Advisory 19 from March 2013 and Project Advisory 20 from July 2013.)

This is to serve as a reminder that the MSBA updates its guidelines, forms, and templates from time to time. The updated Schematic Design Guidelines can be found here on our website.  The Schematic Design Submittal is the basis of the MSBA facilities grant and, therefore, it must be of sufficient detail to clearly define and document the scope, budget, and schedule of the proposed project for consideration and approval by both the MSBA Board of Directors and the local community.  Please note, in addition to minor edits and clarifications, some changes have been made to the following sections:

  • Schematic Design Submittal Procedures
  • 4.1.2 Schematic Design Binder
  • 4.2.2 Facility Assessment Subcommittee Review
  • 4.2.3 Project Scope and Budget Conference
  • 4.2.4 MSBA Board Approval
  • Appendix 4B – Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Submittal Requirements
  • Appendix 4D – Sample Room Data Sheets
  • Appendix 4E – MSBA Reimbursement Rate Calculations
  • Appendix 4H – Module 4 Schematic Design Checklist

The updated Module 4 – Schematic Design Guidelines apply to all Core Program projects for which the District submits a Schematic Design Submittal to the MSBA on or after February 1, 2015 unless otherwise instructed in writing by the MSBA Project Manager (“PM”).
