This project funds preparation of facility plans and related plans/studies/analysis, e.g. environmental, feasibility, engineering, and utilities analysis. Facility plans produce well-reasoned project cost estimates based on preliminary design, i.e. thirty percent of final design and construction documents. Preliminary design includes topographic surveys, environmental assessments, traffic studies, site plans, schematic drawings, floor plans, elevations, quantity calculations, and cost estimates, as well as public participation. Facility planning is needed when the variables or options involved in the project do not support reliable independent cost estimating. This project also supports upfront planning activities associated with capital investments that may result from public-private partnerships.
