Owner's Design Guidelines
Design Guideline Elements
These Design Guideline Elements provide direction to design professionals as a general rule for most circumstances. With the wide variety of facilities, varying life expectancies and program requirements, the Design Guidelines must be specifically and correctly applied to each project by the design professional.
These Design Guidelines do not replace professional design analysis. We expect the design professional to conduct independent evaluations for each project. Applications of proven technologies and systems to provide cost effective alternate design concepts are encouraged.
We recognize that there will be times when deviations from these Design Guidelines may be appropriate on some projects, and in those instances, the design professional is expected to proactively and in writing, notify the Owner's Project Manager for approval to deviate from the Guidelines.
The version of a Design Guideline Element posted on this site at the time that the Project Proposal is approved for a given project shall be used in the preparation of Contract Documents.
