Background Discussion
  • The Preferred Building Grounds Equipment, Materials and Design Criteria Catalog was developed to be used for new construction and maintenance throughout the County-owned facilities to standardize products and design.  Early review and edits were conducted by contracted Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Engineering, Architectural firms along with pertinent County staff.
  • The Catalog is a quick reference for construction, building maintenance, and grounds staff during new construction, remodeling repairs, and maintenance.  It is a compilation of preferences for the most reliable and efficient products available to increase conformity of construction and maintenance thereby reducing cost of replacement and maintenance.
  • The use of the Catalog has also been proven successful reducing inventory costs for repairs and maintenance by eliminating varying degrees of different products.  Furthermore, its use has increased efficiency by limiting the continuing maintenance and repair training required for differing system installation.
