Construction Guidelines

The Construction Guidelines are in the process of being revised and organized under the new numbering system as show on this page. If you don't see the particular guideline you are looking for you may find an earlier version here.

The NC State University Construction Guidelines is presented to the design community as an aid to the design and construction of facilities and renovations at NC State University. The information collected here represents the efforts of many design, construction, operations, and safety professionals to provide uniform and relevant information to designers on minimum standards required for University work.

This edition of the Guidelines represents a significant modification of the 1998 edition. It is intended to be a companion document to the Physical Master Plan - A Campus of Neighborhoods and Paths, and to supplement the policies and procedures of the State Construction Office and the latest edition of the State Construction Manual. All professionals providing design and construction administration services to the University should be familiar with the State Construction Manual and have copies for reference.
