The City of Rochester maintains and requires contractors to use uniform specifications for the construction of public works projects within the city. The specifications are divided into several categories:
- Standard Specifications (1991): Standard Construction Contract Documents issued November 1, 1991 and contain the standard specifications.
- Supplementary Specifications: Specifications that have been expanded or updated over the years and supersede their related standard specification
- State-approved City Specifications for use with Federal/State Funded Projects: For projects that contain federal or state funds, either in whole or in part, only locally prepared specifications that appear on this list can be utilized
- Water Specifications: The standard specifications for water work have been rewritten and are now maintained by the Water Bureau
If you have any general questions concerning these documents, please contact the City’s Architecture and Engineering Bureau at (585) 428-6860, or email your questions. If you have any project specific questions, please contact the City’s Project Manager responsible for that project.
