      BLOG:  Thank you for your support and participation in the PASS program.  This memo is one in a series of occasional updates and news memos, which can also be found on line here: http://streamlineinstitute.com/index.php/passplans/news/

      • You will find an updated list of jurisdictions
      • Upcoming Beta launch of an exciting new program to complement PASS: One and Done – strategic elimination of extra plan review cycles

      NEW PASS EXPANSION The development of the Phase Two Checklist for expansion of the PASS program to “Non-Residential New Construction and Additions” is nearly complete, thanks to the diligent effort led by Mike Helmer (Roseville).  This is a great time for final vetting of the expanded checklist for all types and sizes of non-residential construction (except specialty project types of course – such as schools and hospitals).  Please take a few minutes to give the NR Checklist a review.  You can find it here in ‘microsoft’ excel format

      Please pass along any comments or suggestions to me or Mike Helmer on or before August 1st. 

      CONTRIBUTE PLANS: FREE PASS: The next step in this expansion of the PASS program will be additional example slides for the New NonResidential Training Class module.  If you are a design professional that does new Non Residential work, please consider participating by providing us an ‘anonymized’ digital set of plans for a project that has been successfully completed.   Those examples selected for use will earn the contributing firm a free ‘update class’ pass and registry as a thank you.  Please let me know if you are interested I will contact you with particulars.

      USING PASS? We would like to encourage your use of the PASS program.   Please let us know when you use PASS, and any feedback is welcome as well.
