Consultant Procedures and Design Guidelines
University of Missouri's Consultant Procedures and Design Guidelines Manual is intended to assist architects, engineers, design professionals, and Design/Build contractors (A/E) in understanding the University's policies, the minimum design and submittal criteria, and the basic minimum requirements for material and products to be included in all University projects.
- The University of Missouri Consultant Procedures and Design Guidelines are controlled from this site, unless noted.
- The appropriate edition of the Consultant Procedures and Design Guidelines for Consultants with active UM design projects is referenced in the agreement between the University and the Consultant.
- Consultants are responsible for downloading the standards from this site.
The manual has the following sections:
Section 1 - Orientation
Section 1, Orientation, describes the general business relationship between the consultant and University.
Section 2 - Planning and Contract Development Guidelines
Section 2, Planning and Contract Development Guidelines, list University Codes, standards, design review submittal requirements, drawing, and project manual requirements.
- Section2.1, Planning and Contract Document Development Guidelines for Design-Bid-Build Delivery Method

Summary of Recent Changes to the Consultant Procedures and Design Guidelines
- Section 18.104.22.168.1 Changed ADAAG to ADA Standards
- Section 22.214.171.124.1 Changed ADAAG to ADA Standards
- Section 126.96.36.199 Added Construction Manager at Risk
- Section 188.8.131.52 Added “The Construction Manager shall be copied on all correspondence necessary to fulfill their required duties.
- Added Section 184.108.40.206 The consultant will have the responsibility to collaborate with the Construction Manager so they may fulfill their required duties, including, but not limited to the following:
- Throughout the development of the design of the Project, the consultant with the Construction Manager shall jointly schedule and attend regular meetings with the Owner. The Construction Manager will consult with the Owner and Architect regarding site use and improvements and the selection of materials, building systems and equipment. The Construction Manager will provide recommendations on construction feasibility; actions designed to minimize adverse effects of labor or material shortages; time requirements for procurement, installation and construction completion; and factors related to construction cost, including estimates of alternative designs or materials, preliminary budgets and possible economies.
- Based upon the Construction Cost Budget, the Construction Manager will provide an evaluation of the program and Construction Cost Budget, each in terms of the other. The consultant is still required to provide estimates of construction cost as part of the Basic Services listed in the Standard Consulting Agreement. The consultant shall collaborate with the Construction Manager on the estimated construction costs. The consultant is still responsible to provide a design within the owner’s Construction Cost Budget.
- The regular meeting described in Section 220.127.116.11.1 shall serve as a forum for the exchange of information concerning the Project and review of the design submittals with the Owner and Construction Manager.
- The Construction Manager will assist in the consultant’s investigation and assessment of the existing facilities and the existing conditions at the site of the Project.
- The Construction Manager will develop and manage a construction management plan so that the Work is coordinated and done in a manner so as to avoid interference with any existing facilities. The Construction Manager shall also develop safety, security and other requirements for the Project to protect the public, workers, the Owner, and the property of the Owner, from risks and hazards as a result of the continued use of the existing facilities during the construction of the Project. The consultant shall review this plan to ensure that conflicting requirements are not stated in the bidding documents.
- The Construction Manager shall initiate meetings with the consultant to explore methods in which the environmental performance and sustainability of the Work for the Project might be improved and the environmental impact reduced. The Construction Manager shall, in conjunction with the consultant, evaluate the selection of products and materials and/or the adoption of construction or architecting methods, techniques and processes which result in or involve:
- reductions in waste;
- reductions in energy consumption;
- reductions in utility water consumption;
- reductions in CO2 emissions;
- reductions in materials from non-renewable sources;
- reductions in commercial vehicle movements;
- maintenance or optimization of biodiversity;
- maintenance or optimization of ecologically valuable habitat; and
