Design Standards Index

INTRODUCTION

The standards set forth in this document are intended to serve as design and construction standard guidelines for the University of Rochester. As such, they reflect the planning, design, construction, and maintenance expertise of University personnel. The standards have been compiled and edited by Campus, Planning, Design & Construction Management from information collected from Operations and Maintenance, Support Operations, Central Utilities, the Office of the University Architect, University Telecommunications and Environmental Health and Safety.

As standards for the University, the information is to be applied to renovation and new construction from the very first planning and design stages through actual construction and facilities maintenance and management. The information included within each standard section contains procedures to be followed, materials to be used, or design guidelines which the University of Rochester has found to be appropriate to assure the quality desired at the University now and through our future maintenance of these facilities. The standards may not be appropriate for all situations nor are they intended to discourage new means and methods being explored. Design professionals are responsible for confirming the standards are consistent with the code and good engineering practice and bring to the attention any deviations that are required to comply with code requirements, engineering best practices or recommendations due to special project circumstances. Deviations from these standards shall be requested in writing to the Executive Director of Campus, Planning, Design & Construction Management on a project by project basis for review and approval.

The standards included herein shall serve as a program of quality for all University-wide design, construction, and maintenance procedures. The level of quality deemed by any one standard is determined on the basis of reliability, serviceability, safety, and cost. The information contained in these standards is not specific to any one project, but common to all Facilities projects.

The University of Rochester Design Standards is not to be used as specifications.
