  • Incorporate green building standards into each project
  • Support and promote campus sustainability efforts
  • Promote an improved and uniform campus aesthetic

Design and Construction Standards

Design and Construction Standards

All construction projects must obviously meet the applicable building, fire, and safety codes.  Beyond these requirements, Longwood has established strict guidelines and high standards to help create and maintain the aesthetics of our beautiful campus.  These guidelines and standards also encompass other areas such as sustainability, stormwater control, and technical and safety requirements.
