sw1.pdfIn order to ensure uniformity in the construction of both public works and private infrastructure improvements in the City of Southfield, the Engineering Department has established a set of Standard Details. These details encompass most of the elements common to the majority of construction projects. The City's Standard Details were developed to satisfy or exceed the requirements of other agencies such as the Michigan Department of Transportation, the Road Commission for Oakland County and the Oakland County Drain Commission. These details are included, either by direct use or reference, as a requirement for all infrastructure improvement projects constructed in the City of Southfield.
