The Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC) is pleased to announce the 2014 Ohio School Design Manual (OSDM) update. Each year the Commission revises the OSDM with support and valuable input from the design and construction community, school districts, state agencies and other interested parties. The result is a dynamic document that reinforces our commitment to high quality school facilities while maintaining flexibility and local control.
This year’s update includes a separate volume entitled, "VOLUME 1 - EDUCATIONAL FACILITY PLANNING GUIDE” which is a stand-alone guide for school districts to use as a guide for facility planning. This stand-alone guide outlines the process from inception up to the design phase of a facility project. The separate volume provides school districts the planning tools required for a facility project without the length and quantity of the entire OSDM.
