2015

01-May-2015
UM AEC has updated their design guidelines website. The new format is based on a book of chapters. The book of Design Guidelines has been compiled into 10 chapters. These chapters originated from previous design guideline titles and categories. The goal of the new format is to create streamlined, adaptable categories of subjects for design professionals. Numbers have replaced letter designations to allow for future expansion, and ease in abbreviation for meeting minutes and comments. With these changes we too have followed the direction of the "chapters". Where no UMHHC specific items are located, these links go directly to UM AEC.

The information contained within the design guidelines has not changed.

SID (Special Instructions to Designers) documents are now located within their area of technical interest.
