The Design Standards provide mandatory requirements for all employees and contractors for capital works, medium works, minor works, site funded and maintenance projects at Department for Education facilities.

The standards have been developed to assist architects, designers, builders, contractors and schools in creating high quality learning environments that utilise best practice to optimise the participation of all students. 

This document also provides reference information for the development of project facilities briefs, detailed planning and technical information for the design of education facilities and a reference source for all information relevant to the provision of education facilities.
