Design Standards and Guidelines
The University of Auckland Design Standards and Guidelines outlines the University's expectations for its built forms in order to achieve consistency in the quality of the design and construction of those built forms. They are aligned with the University's requisites for Health and Safety, aesthetic appeal, maintainability and environmental sustainability, while ensuring there is enough scope for innovation and technological advancements to be explored within each project.
The Standards are intended for use by any parties who may be involved in the planning, design and construction of the University's facilities. This includes external consultants and contractors, the University planners, designers and project managers as well as faculty and office staff who may be involved in the planning, design, maintenance or refurbishment of facilities.
These Standards are managed by Property Services of behalf of the University. Please note not all documents are currently available. For further information, please contact PSTechServices@auckland.ac.nz.
