2016 Building Design Standards are applicable to all USPS facilities projects - new construction, and renovation, as well as repair and alterations. There are various components that are part of the design standards program - Standard Design Criteria, Standard Detail Library, Master Specification, Processing & Distribution (P&D) prototype designs, Medium Standard Building Designs (MSBDs), Small Standard Building Designs (SSBDs), and Modular Building Designs. Together these components establish the design standards for all postal facilities.
Deviation from these standards is not permitted without written authorization from the Team Leader, Design and Construction Programs, at Headquarters. Review the Standard Design Criteria - Introduction, for details on deviation policy and required Deviation Request Form.
