Design Standards

In order to fulfill our mission of providing useful planning, project development, design, and management services, the Facilities Department in conjunction with the Office of Planning, Development & Construction has created standard rules and procedures to follow in order to ensure that all work is done in a consistent and quality fashion that is helpful to everyone involved.


The Building Construction Standards Manual is maintained by Office of Planning, Development & Construction of Eckerd College to assist and guide architects/engineers/designers. The manual provides criteria for designs leading to construction.

The Building Construction Standards Manual provides criteria to architects/engineers/designers as they complete project designs. As a contractor for Eckerd College, your primary responsibility is to adhere to the project specifications, drawings, and contract documents. The Standards Manual is the basis of and supplementary to the specifications/drawings.

Note: Substitutions for standard items noted in the Standards Manual must have prior approval by the architect/engineer/designer and Eckerd College.

The standards are updated at various times throughout the year. Please refer to the Revision Log in Part 1 - General Standards. The revision date is noted in the footer of the document.
