UNC-CH Planning Process

Modifications to, or changes in, University buildings and grounds must be done through the University Facilities Services (UNC Business Manual, PHY Section, Policy 1). The purpose of the policy is to avoid the creation of unsafe or hazardous conditions, to avoid developing future maintenance problems, and to assure compliance with statutory requirements. Plans for such modifications are sent to the Environment, Health and Safety Office for review and recommendations.

The Environment, Health and Safety Office is included in the design development review of all new buildings (UNC Business Manual, PHY Section, Policy 17 and PLN Section, Policy 2). Environment, Health and Safety Office personnel are included in subsequent phases, including development of the “punch list.”
