DFCM Design Manual

University of Utah Supplement

The documents provided below are the University of Utah Supplement to the DFCM Design Manual.  The DFCM Design Manual along with the University of Utah Supplement together form the core standard for architectural/engineering services on University projects.

Architects and Engineers who are contracted for pre-design studies, programs, design services, construction oversight, etc., on University projects are expected to adhere to the requirements found in both the DFCM Design Manual and the University of Utah Supplement.  This Supplement is to be applied to all contracts regarding University facilities, whether the contract originates from DFCM or from the University of Utah.

The purpose of this Supplement is to inform the consultant of specific standards, functional requirements, and systems limitations needed to satisfy University infrastructure, organization, and mission objectives.  An understanding of this information is essential for the successful completion of the consultant’s contract responsibilities.

The DFCM Design Manual consists of three separate documents (Programming Standards, Design Process, and Design Requirements). The University has a corresponding Supplement to each document. Updates to the University Supplement are intended to be published on May 1 and November 1 each year.
