A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with green building design and construction guidelines and policies:

This Guide outlines basic information and general requirements for Consultants and
Contractors providing Design and/or Construction Services at SFU Burnaby Campus.
The document is to be read in conjunction with other detailed requirements and
specifications provided by Facilities from time to time, and will be linked to these
documents as much as possible.
Guidelines are not intended to override Construction Specifications or Construction
Contract terms but are meant to inform Designers and Contractors that are unfamiliar
with:
• SFU’s Design and Construction practices and standard forms of Contract
• Design and Construction approval processes
• Building Standards unique to the Burnaby Campus
The Guidelines will aid Departments/Users to avoid unnecessary delays, confusion and
unplanned expenses, while protecting adjacent occupants from unnecessary noise,
disruptions and inconvenience.
The Guidelines should be read in conjunction with other standards and project specific
information provided by Facilities Services (FS). In the event of any conflict between the
Guidelines and more detailed specification section information relevant to individual
Divisions, the conflicts should be raised with SFU’s Project Representative for clarification.
