Building Code Compliance
The Office of the University Building Official assists with the university's design and construction efforts for all new university facilities, and existing facilities undergoing renovation, by ensuring that all projects comply with the:
- Current edition of the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code (VUSBC) and the amendments made by the Commonwealth of Virginia
- Americans with Disabilities Act
- ICC/ANSI A117.1 Accessible and Useable Building Standards
Starting a Project
Design professionals are encouraged to contact the Office of the University Building Official early in the design process. Final construction documents will need to be reviewed and approved for code compliance prior to construction. Construction change orders and responses to requests for information will generally need to be reviewed for code compliance prior to construction implementation.
