Southwest Concourse Green Building Design

The following guideline documents are available in PDF format:

Note: additional standards and procedures that may affect design and construction (e.g., Elevator Shutdowns, Backflow Prevention, Power Reduction) maybe found on the Physical Plant Resources page.
