Benefits of Moving to SUDAS
There are many benefits to having a statewide standard, including:

  • Uniformity in construction materials, techniques, and designs;
  • Consistent standards between communities – which saves time and costs;
  • Ease of staying current with changes in technology and products;
  • Less “book-keeping” time required from City staff in maintaining a complete set of specifications and standards;
  • SUDAS is already currently used by many Eastern Iowa communities, and will replace the currently used Metropolitan Standard Specifications and Details.
