ARCHITECTURAL AND ENGINEERING CONTRACT DESIGN
Increasingly, the Forest Service contracts
the design of facilities to private architecture,
landscape architecture, and engineering
consultants. These firms may be unfamiliar
with designing in natural landscapes. They
may lack the tradition of harmonious, subordinate
design that Forest Service designers
are encultured with.
The guide communicates the desired Forest
Service character to architectural and
engineering (A&E) consultants. It provides
Forest Service managers and contract
administrators with standards to guide and
measure A&E performance.
