Professional Awards Jury Comments
This guide was developed to help the USDA Forest Service return
to its rich tradition of planning and designing quality facilities
that are both aesthetically pleasing and that present the appropriate
image for the agency. It serves to illustrate the role of everyone
involved in creating and maintaining a quality facility, from project
sponsors, decision makers, and designers, to field staff and technicians.
Its heavy use in the field and its impact throughout the Forest
Service is very apparent.
