The purpose of the Facility Guidelines Manual is to provide design teams with clear and concise guidance related to specified and designed material and system performance requirements for Colorado College facilities. The guidelines are to be used for both new and renovation construction types. It is anticipated that the Manual will serve as the initial technical design concept development point in the course of preparing and delivering project construction documents. The Manual also provides a comprehensive description of the college’s intended design and submittal process, design intent and requirements for the design of high-performance facilities, and specific design and built environment requirements for various elements of facilities and infrastructure at Colorado College.
