On April 19, 2006, the State Wisconsin Building Commission adopted the Building Commission Sustainable Facilities Policy and DSF Sustainable Facilities Guidelines and Minimum Standards. As of February 10, 2010 the title changed to “DSF Sustainable Facilities Standards” to accurately represent that these are minimum standards that apply to all projects.
