Building & Construction Standards

Version updated July 2013

These standards are for use only by the University of Colorado at Boulder (UCB), its consultants and contractors. They are to be used as a guideline for UCB building and construction projects. Consultants shall provide project-specific documents and specifications based on code and engineering analyses.

Note: All projects initiated after July 1st of any given year shall use the most current edition of the standards. All projects already underway (with a signed agreement) prior to July 1st shall continue to use the edition of the standards in use at the time of project initiation.

Consultants and contractors must familiarize themselves with the standards and all appendices prior to design and construction of UCB projects.

All revisions to the standards are reviewed/approved by the appropriate AHJ (according to the attached list).
