Building & Construction Standards

Version 2009

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 1 of any given year shall use the most current edition of the standards. All projects already underway (with a signed agreement) prior to July 1 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.
