The WSU Design & Construction Standards (DCS) are critical tools to assist architects, engineers, other design professionals, contractors, and university staff in understanding the desired standards of Washington State University in developing, maintaining, and repairing its facilities.

The DCS are Standards, not Specifications. The components within these documents are to be conveyed within the specifications developed by industry professionals for all WSU projects.

Any deviation shall be clearly communicated with the WSU Project Manager, and the legal responsibility for project document preparation shall continue to reside with the Design Professional.

Comments/questions can be submitted electronically using the feedback submission form located on the Division page for each standard.  Reference the ‘Design Standard Feedback’ link below for a summary of all submitted comments/questions along with detailed instructions.
