Submit a School Project

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​To submit school projects for CGS review:

CGS requires a physical check and two wet-signed copies of the contract document (Work Order). CGS will return one completed Work Order to the originator. All other documents should be uploaded directly​ using our Box.com upload widget (see link at the bottom of this page). Projects will not be processed until CGS has received all the documents.

  • Upload​ the following items:
    • Geologic hazard reports, geotechnical reports, seismic reports
    • Site Data Report from registered design professional in responsible charge (as required by CBC §1603A.2)
    • Application and Work Order Form (print and sign 2 hardcopies of Work Order, which must be mailed)
    • Current site plan

All file names should start with the name of the school so that CGS can associate all the files together, and connect them with the payment received via mail. A note can also be added to the “Description” field of the upl​oad widget.
