Facility Standards (In Progress)
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Facilities Standards shall be applied for all remodeling and new construction at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. These Standards are intended to achieve the value consistent with an institute of higher education. Where these Standards exceed minimum Code and/or Capital Development Board (CDB) requirements, the Standards shall apply. Where the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Facilities Standards and CDB Requirements are silent on a design issue, the International Building Code shall serve as the design Standard.
Here are some documents in the standards that address energy management, sustainability, environmental impact, or other such issues:
The current edition of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Facilities Standards supersedes previous editions of the U of I Facilities Standards and is the design manual for use by designers for projects at the Urbana campus facilities. The intent of this document is to provide design requirements specific to issues that are unique to the Urbana campus. It is not intended to cover every aspect of design, nor is it a substitute for the technical competence expected of a design or construction professional.
