    Campus Design Guidelines and Preferences

    The intention of the Tennessee Tech Construction Guidelines is to provide a framework for designers, thereby establishing consistency across projects. The guidelines provide answers to common questions and campus goals for shaping the design response to any unanswered questions. These standards are not intended to be comprehensive specifications nor are they intended to limit discussion on any given topic. New technologies, materials, and techniques are encouraged to be examined and discussed with Tennessee Tech representatives on all projects within their individual context. We will be adding new divisions as they are completed.
