Process for Construction Standards

  • Provide and recommend cost-effective designs that achieve the quality facility requirement and provide all necessary value engineering to ensure funds allocated are utilized to the best degree.
  • Ensure compliance with relevant building, fire, accessibility, UFAS and OSHA codes regulations.
  • We have developed our standards and are responsible for ensuring these standards are met during construction. We are also responsible for verifying that the standards being used are current. As methods evolve with technological and social advances, our standards will be revised.
  • CM standards manual is available upon special request.
  • All design standards are organized in Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) format, Divisions 1 through 16.
