Presentation at APPA's 81st Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. Reviews the appropriateness of the view that the need for longevity supports the justification for rugged buildings and stringent design standards, challenging the notion that all buildings should be built to last more than 50 years. Discusses recent pressure to reduce construction costs and possible solutions to providing alternative building construction. Highlights the use of life cycle costing and present value analysis. Includes macro and micro perspectives on university design standards and options. Covers managing and evaluating standards.
