This essential resource is the graphical companion to the 2009 Greenbook: Standard Specifications for Public Works Construction.

Sometimes nothing explains construction standards like a clear illustration.

This loose leaf manual features hundreds of standardized drawings and dimensional details covering every aspect of public works construction, including:

  • Street improvement
  • Sewers and sanitation
  • Street lighting
  • Traffic signals
  • Retaining walls
  • Landscaping and irrigation systems
  • And much more -- now all in standard English units!

Every dimension is clearly illustrated so that there are no questions on the requirements of the public works standards.

Standard Plans also features cross-sections that clearly illustrate approved installation techniques, and exhaustive notes covering every detail -- with clearly spelled out answers to any question you might have. Dimensions are listed in both feet and inches and metric measurements.

Most importantly, Standard Plans for Public Works Construction contains all the changes that have been researched and approved by the 25-member "Greenbook" committee, which includes representatives from the American Public Works Association, the Associated General Contractors of California, the Engineering Contractors Association, and the Southern California Contractors Association.
