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 and in loose-leaf form in order to permit periodic updating. A Newark Specific Version can be obtained on the internet at 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.

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

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

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