Owner's Design Guidelines
What Are the Owner's Design Guidelines?
These guidelines have been developed as a collaborative cross-divisional effort through coordination with various MD Anderson personnel and outside consultants to identify preferred methods and materials of construction. The documents are continually evaluated and modified as required to insure they evolve to be an indispensable set of tools that will help us all provide this Institution with the quality facilities that are desired, required and deserved.
All facilities staff, consultants and contractors are encouraged to participate in the ongoing development of these guidelines by communicating any concerns, suggestions or questions. The forms below has been provided to allow formal consideration and processing of any input you may have.
Please download, complete and forward the following MS Word document form by email, fax, interoffice mail or hand deliver to the number/address provided.
