Mechanical Standards and Guidelines


Consulting Engineers providing mechanical (fire protection, plumbing and HVAC ) design services for Ball State University should refer to the BSU Mechanical Standards and Guidelines at the links to the right for guidelines when preparing project bid documents. 


BSU Standards and Guidelines are not a substitute for complete project specifications.  They are published with the intent of assisting the consultant by answering common design questions pertaining to Owner preferences.  Consultants are expected to adhere to the requirements of these Standards and Guidelines. Written design review comments by BSU during design development take precedence over the published Mechanical Standards and Guidelines.   Any questions about the content, application or use of these documents should be addressed to:
