The Standard Specifications define the materials acceptable for use in New York City Public Schools, and are based on and complement the Design Requirements. For projects that have a system that is not included in the specification, the designer is to create the section based on the formatting. Deviations from the standards on capacity projects must be approved through the Deviations Committee.

The Standard Specifications are available in Word format and are to be edited as applicable for all projects.

General Requirements in the Division 1 section are not to be changed, revised, edited or omitted for projects.

Supplementary Requirements in the Division 1 section are to be edited as required for the project.

In order to view the Standard Specifications, you must download and install an MS Word Viewer or have a working version of MS Word 97 or later installed. You may download the latest viewer for free by following this link: Microsoft Word Viewer MS Word Viewer
