View policy pdf:  UGA Design Construction Supplemental General Requirements Standards Policy

Policy Statement

The UGA Design & Construction Supplement General Requirement & Standards (Standards) document has been compiled to provide one location and resource for UGA Standards. The Office of University Architects for Facilities Planning (OUA) and the Facilities Management Division (FMD) are the two main UGA departments that administer construction related projects. Other departments with critical roles in the execution of projects include Enterprise Information Technology Services, Environmental Safety Division, University Housing, and Real Estate and Space Management. The design, construction, and renovation requirements for all of these departments are included in the Standards. Since the OUA interfaces with all of these departments and is responsible for the major construction and renovation projects, the OUA leads the coordination and maintenance of the Standards.

Reason for Policy

This is not a stand-alone document and procedure manual. All of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (BOR) requirements remain applicable. The purpose of this Standards is to document specific requirements to UGA campuses and this information supplements the BOR requirements.

All Design Professionals and Contractors that contract on behalf of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia with UGA are required to be in conformance with the Standards. As the Standards is updated there will be multiple dated versions of the Standards and all versions will be archived on the website provided below.

As each project is unique, not every requirement in the Standards is appropriate for every project. For situations when the Design Professional and / or Contractor do not feel adherence to the Standards is appropriate, a request for a variance can be submitted to the Project Manager.
