Cal Poly Construction Standards

The California Polytechnic State University details and specifications provide a list of preferred and required products as well as mandatory design minimums for all construction on the university campus. These criteria are provided to aid the design professional in the development of a successful project and to meet the minimum requirements of the University. This document is not aimed to replace the work of the design professional or their best judgment, nor is it to be taken verbatim as a contract specification. The goal is to ensure that the campus is provided with functional and long-lasting buildings based on experience with existing campus buildings and with maintenance issues that have been encountered.

For questions regarding specific projects please contact your facilities Project Manager.
