The Engineering Division no longer distributes hard copies of plans and specifications. Plans and specifications are now distributed electronically in PDF format on our website for all engineering-based projects at the above link. To access the plans and specifications, you will need to submit basic company information and create an account with the City of Sioux Falls. City staff will review, confirm the submitted information if necessary. Upon approval, you will be able to begin downloading the plans and specifications. Some key features and highlights of the system are:
- All plan holders will be displayed on the website. When a set of plans is downloaded, you will be prompted to specify the reason for the download. This information will be listed on the website. For example, you can be listed as a prime bidder, quoting subcontractor, etc. This is done as a courtesy to the contracting community. Please note that whatever reason is given for the download, it does not prevent the contractor from bidding as a prime on the project.
- Addendums will be posted to the website. An email will be sent to all electronic plan holders when an addendum is issued as a courtesy, but the contractor is still required to check the website in case the email does not go through.
- A company may create more than one account with the City as long as there are separate email addresses on each account. Multiple accounts cannot use the same email address.
If you need any assistance in creating an account or have any other questions, you may contact the City Engineer’s Office at 367-8601.
