Design Center Standards Manual

The Stephen F. Austin State University's Design Standards Manual is a living document established to guide Architects and Engineers, as well as anyone who is commissioned to design, renovate and otherwise alter buildings and related facilities. It serves to consolidate and organize the range of institutional knowledge retained by the University Facilities Department Staff. This manual contains both recommendations and mandatory provisions. It is the responsibility of Architects and Engineers to produce the best life cycle cost building possible, within constraints of budget, and the University does not wish to handicap their efforts by insistence on blind adherence to inflexible requirements. This manual is intended to be updated annually or more often as needed.
