SDSU Design and Construction Standards

SPECIAL NOTE:

THE SDSU DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS HAVE BEEN UPDATED IN 2018.  PREVIOUS VERSIONS ARE AVAILABLE BY REQUEST.  IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CONTACT DAVE LAW, DIRECTOR OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT, SDSU FACILITIES AND SERVICES, 605-688-4136. 

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The design and construction standards have been written to assist architects, engineers, other design professionals, contractors and SDSU staff in understanding the preferences of South Dakota State University in the development, maintenance and repair of its facilities, and to explain the procedures, policies, and basic minimum requirements for materials and products included in construction projects.

It is understood that the basic minimum requirements described within these standards are in addition to the applicable codes and requirements. We have not attempted to repeat the code requirements throughout the Divisions. Where there is no specific recommendation or requirement, the A/E shall exercise their professional judgment. Documents which do not adhere to South Dakota State University standards and procedures for design and construction will be rejected and returned to the A/E for appropriate revisions.

These design and construction standards are in their first edition and will be updated on a regular basis. We have provided the 2012 edition, in the future previous editions will be made available upon request. Future editions will be available below with and without edit marks.
