Standards and Guidelines

Projects and Procedures


The Project Design Standards were created to provide a list of preferred and required products for each project, which will align with the standards required for all UCSF Medical Center projects. These standards are provided to aid the design professional in creating consistent and complete Contract Documents. This document is not aimed to replace the work of the design professional or their best judgment, nor is it to be taken verbatim as a contract specification. The goal is to ensure that UCSF is provided with functional and long-lasting buildings based on experience with existing university buildings and with maintenance issues that have been encountered.


    The UCSF Design & Construction Guidelines are mandatory design constraints, to be adhered to by ALL construction projects on all UCSF Medical Center campuses.
