Revision Log and Archive

The Office of Physical Plant updates the Design and Construction Standards as needed to keep pace with changing technology and changes in University requirements. 

Comments and proposed corrections or revisions are welcome from all users of the Standards and should be directed in writing via email to opp_es@ums.psu.edu.

All proposed changes to the Standards are reviewed by the Standards Coordinator and a Standards Team composed of technical experts representing a cross section of OPP.

Upon review and approval by the Standards Coordinator and Standards Team, a proposed revision will be implemented.

Significant changes to the Standards that have been implemented are recorded in the Revision Log.  Note that the University does not record corrections of typographical errors, non-technical grammatical corrections, changes to Division 00, or changes to the Introduction to the Design Standards in the Revision Log.
