Swedish term or phrase: dimensionerande utomhustemperatur
In the specifications for a tender, it provides the "Dimensionerande data." Meaning of course the assumptions upon which the equiptment or facilities are to be designed for, the range, size, or rating.

Is there a general term used in the construction industry to refer to "Dimensionerande Data"?

For instance, it woulda apply to Dimensionerande utomhustemperatur, Dimensionerande förutsättningar, etc.

Design parameters - outdoor temperature
Explanation:
You were looking for a general term to refer to "Dimensionerande Data" and I think this is 'Design parameters' - see reference.
Narrowing down to "dimensionerande utomhustemperatur", I therefore suggest 'Design parameters - outdoor temperature'.
Your choice of words will depend on how that part of the specification is written.
