PREFACE ________________________________________________________________________ This manual has been developed as a guideline for Architects and Engineers, as well as anyone who

is commissioned to design, renovate and otherwise alter buildings and related facilities for Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. It has been prepared in order to clarify those procedures and standards that the University has found to be most workable, to indicate Rutgers’ preferences on certain materials used in construction of their facilities, and to answer the miscellaneous questions that arise on many building projects. It both supplements and complements the requirements of the Owner-Architect Agreement, and should be considered as a fundamental part of the Program provided for each individual project. Whenever the term “Architect” is used, it shall apply equally to “Engineer and Architect/Engineer (A/E).” Many of the recipients of this manual will have performed work previously for Rutgers. We beg their indulgence in suffering through a great deal say “Welcome”, and express our hope that the material contained herein will greatly simplify their work. This manual is presented on the Internet at http://facilities.rutgers.edu/facdesign/Designstds/design.htm and in loose-leaf form in order to permit periodic updating. A Newark Specific Version can be obtained on the internet at http://rutgers-newark.rutgers.edu/ppnewark/ds. Flexibility is inherent in certain of the requirements, and changes will be made when necessary. It will be the Architect or Engineer’s responsibility to ascertain that his manual is up to date. For this purpose, all pages have been dated. This manual contains both recommendations and mandatory provisions. Mandatory provisions are distinguished by the words “shall” or “must”. However, except for those items which must comply with legal requirements, local codes, etc., nothing in this manual is intended to be so final that variation there from will not be considered and approved if it is in the best interest of the University to do so. It is the responsibility of Architects and Engineers to produce the best life cycle cost building possible, within constraints of budget, and the University does not wish to handicap their efforts by insistence on blind adherence to inflexible requirements. However, intended variations must be brought to the attention of the University for specific written approval. Otherwise, Architects and Engineers will be held responsible for any additional costs resulting from failure to comply with the mandatory requirements of this manual. A sincere attempt has been made to establish performance rather than specification standards wherever this has been practical. The manual is not intended to be a “master specification” and therefore, in most cases, the language in this manual will need modification before it is included in the Project Specifications.

The temptation to underline words or phrases for emphasis has been resisted. In a guideline of this type some items must be more important than others, but all, we believe, are noteworthy. The basic philosophy has been to include only those details and procedures that will make a complex and delicately meshed operation simpler and more productive. The ideas contained herein will be helpful, but these are only the raw material from which the imagination and skill of Architects and Engineers will create buildings that can make a significant contribution to the fulfillment of the University’s objectives. Initiative, resourcefulness, and creative ingenuity cannot be prescribed between the covers of a book. The text of the manual is arranged in four Parts as indicated below. Although there will, of necessity, be some overlapping of information between Parts, this arrangement provides the most logical organization of subject matter. Part I Define the administrative procedures, which Architects and Engineers must follow in working with the University. It is anticipated that this statement of procedures will establish a smooth operating relationship throughout the entire planning and construction process. Part II Outlines the format, which should be used in assembling the project manual. Part III Discusses design considerations, special documentation requirements and technical requirements of materials and methods of construction. It is arranged on the basis of the CSI 16 - Division Specification Format to include all of the areas in which the University requires certain minimal standards in the design, documentation and selection of materials and quality of workmanship. When this manual is silent on a particular material, no standards have been developed by the University. In all cases, the Architect or Engineer is to use his / her professional judgment, and, where such judgment indicates design, documentation, material or methods contrary to information found in this manual, the Architect or Engineer should discuss these areas with the Project Manager in charge of their project. The Architect or Engineer shall not proceed with deviations from the requirements of this manual without written approval from the "University." Part IV Establishes standard details. These details are typical standards established by the University and are included to assist Architects and Engineers in preparing Drawings that are acceptable and uniform for all projects.

TITLE SHEET: A title sheet shall be included on all projects with more than 5 drawings. as-built. email address of the A/E and any consultants used on the project Index of all drawings included in the Contract Documents. indicate sheet numbers (for instance sheet 1 of 5). All outside services drawings (special projects. After the title sheet is developed the A/E shall consult with the Project Manager and the Manager of Technical Services to assign a block of numbers to the project.

If they can be entered through more than one room. the following procedure shall be followed by all A/E's: The system depends on some basic definitions as follows: Corridor: A space normally used for pedestrian traffic. If there are floors below the basement the room numbers should be developed on a special basis with the appropriate Newark Physical Plant Personnel. which is. Rooms. Nothing can be more confusing in the latter stages of construction as two (or more) room number plans. Numbers should be in direct sequence. At design development completion. Consistent room numbering will facilitate matters for numerous organizations including Scheduling and Space Management. with doors on two walls. Inventory Control. Therefore. Numbering patterns should begin at the end of the corridor nearest the main entrance or lobby. Lobby: A space used for traffic that is a point for ingress or egress to a building or floor from upper or lower floors. moving away from the entrance. the number of the room most frequently used to gain access should be used 18 . Vestibule: A space used for traffic that is a point of ingress or egress to a building. at least 50% above surrounding grade. and the Facilities Maintenance Services concerned with the Construction Process. and only one number should be applied to one room regardless of the number of doors to that room off the corridor. room numbers will consist of three digits with the first digit designating the floor. at least 5 feet wide and enclosed by solid walls. should be designated by adding a letter after the number of the room through which they are entered from the Corridor (101A). all floors of the building should have similar patterns. which have no direct entrance from a corridor. in 1970 Rutgers adopted a standard method of handling room numbers which should be adopted from the earliest possible point in the design process and carried throughout to completion. Even numbers should apply to rooms on the right side of the corridor and odd numbers to rooms on the left. In general. Basement rooms will use a zero (0) as the first digit.10. In general. First Floor: The lowest floor of any building. The A/E shall use the Rutgers Room Numbering System on all drawings. Fire and Emergency Services. Room: A clearly defined space not normally used for through traffic and enclosed by solid walls. the A/E will work with the Project Manager to develop room numbers consistent with the University system. ROOM NUMBERING ON FLOOR PLANS: With over 800 buildings.

For example. it is possible to establish a fairly reasonable room numbering plan for virtually any building. 2. Dimensions need not be shown. service areas and major architectural features. ramps and loading docks. which reflects the room number to which the door allows access. All CAD files must be AutoCAD release 12 or higher. Inevitable changes arising during the design process. Drawing shall be accurate enough to show such things as distinctions in thickness of major walls and interior partitions. Room numbers will be indicated with a rectangle drawn around each number. However. elevators. the door to room 104 should be labeled "104/1" or "104/A" or similar system. the A/E shall prepare a separate room numbering plan. a situation that seldom occurs in actual practice. Once the basic floor plan is established. as they affect room numbering. provided that the basic rules are applied and tempered with common sense and judgment. will be cleared with the Newark Physical Plant. Specification Standards: 1. Most new buildings have complicated floor plans designed to suit a specific purpose without consideration for creation of any rigid geometric order. stairways. Doors should be numbered with a system. The marked prints will be returned to the A/E with instructions to adhere to the established room numbers on all subsequent submissions. its basic premise assumes a fairly simple floor plan. and names.While this system is quite sensible. and numerous alterations and additions to older buildings often wreak havoc on established room numbering. MASTER SPECIFICATIONS: A/Es are cautioned that computerized specifications must be heavily edited to suit the requirements for the specific project. This drawing shall also be transmitted to the University in CAD format on a computer disc. such as window walls. It is essential that the numbering system for new buildings or renovated buildings be developed by someone thoroughly familiar with the system and the University. Plan shall also show all entrances and exits. with numbers as indicated above. It is recommended that an experienced dedicated specifications writer be employed to write specifications on Rutgers projects. D. prints shall be submitted to the Associate Director for Projects for Newark Physical Plant where the appropriate room numbering system will be marked on the prints. drawn to a scale of 1" = 20' on 17" x 22" mylar transparency showing all rooms and spaces. plazas. COORDINATION: 19 . After the final plans are approved. and details not pertinent of the general layout should be omitted.

Format should be consistent throughout the entire specification. 3. See enclosed sample in the Standards Details Section. The omission of simple words as "not" will completely change the meaning of a sentence. The Architect is responsible to review the engineers' specifications and coordinate such items. Section Number and Title should be boldly indicated at top of first page of Section. additional thoughts or changes in text are often caught and can be corrected. paragraphs and subparagraphs should be numbered or lettered in outline form for easy reference. PROOF READING: The A/E is responsible to insure that all specifications are proofread.Specifications should be coordinated so that issues are addressed only once. This must be performed just prior to printing when the entire specification is complete and is most easily accomplished by using one of the large type numbering machines. These problems often arise when the Architect uses consulting engineers. 4. For instance. All articles. the engineering specifications should not reiterate the number of shop drawings needed. in the proofreading process. Each page of the Section should have the Section number and page number (sequentially numbered) centered at the bottom of the page. The Contractor can easily determine that he has all proper pages by checking the sequential numbers and will know he has the last page with the "END OF SECTION" indication. FORMAT: Use CSI or MasterSpec 3-part format for all specifications. Make sure that specifications from consultants are submitted to the Architect in enough time to perform this review. The first Section of each Division should also indicate the Division name and title. Also. or mention additions to the Bid Form. 20 . All pages of the specification are to be sequentially numbered from page 1 to the end of the Division 16. Each Section should end with "END OF SECTION" to indicate that this is the last page of the Section. Reason: In printing process it is possible to misplace a page or get pages in wrong order.

The word "alternate" should be used only for alternate work. E. or other text designed to sell you on its use rather than indicate the nature of the material or its proper installation. This is particularly a problem when copying specifications provided by manufacturers. and clauses are expressly prohibited: a. If this is the case. it is the General Contractor’s responsibility to perform all work required. When referring to Rutgers. which indicates the advantages for using this product. "Food Service Contractor". PROHIBITED LANGUAGE: The following words. Estimates shall be detailed enough to fully identify all portions of the work. etc. d. "are". The word "alternate" to indicate an "option". which is specified in the technical sections of the specifications and must be included in the bidders' proposals. c. Under this type of contract.. 21 . Remove text.. use the terms "Owner" or "University". "Is". which is used as a sales tool. The word "option" should be used to indicate items for which the contractor may make a choice without affecting the contract. Avoid abbreviations and symbols such as #. Use the word "shall".5. All options must be approved by the University prior to construction in which case either the change will be done at no increase in cost to the project or as a credit or deduct. e. and w/. The words "This Contractor shall. Estimates should also identify critical long lead items. "Plumbing Contractor". &. It is the General Contractor’s business decision as to how the work will be divided amongst their subcontracts. @.. The estimate should be done in Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) format. Estimating Standards: All estimates shall be based upon Means Estimating handbooks. The note "by others" or Not in Contract (NIC).
