Next, call 843-876-2460 to obtain login information for Calpendo, our online scheduling system, to use CBI equipment and facilities. Please download the new project instructions (PDF) for step by step directions on how to proceed along with the new project request form you will need to fill out.  If you need assistance at any time during this process or have any questions, please call 843-876-2460.
