Construction Project Management


The construction of new facilities and installation of new equipment triggers several Environment Health and Safety regulations, as do many construction activities themselves.  Environmental permits are typically required prior to the start of construction activities, which may have significant lead times. It is important to contact EH&S well in advance of starting a new construction project to avoid project delays. For more information, refer to or contact Tim Orozco at 415.476.1480.

EH&S Plans Review

EHS provides assistance to project teams in understanding the widely varied and sometimes complex regulatory requirements for various building, occupancy and research activities.  For complex projects, project teams are strongly encouraged to engage EH&S early in the process to avoid potential project delays and last minute change orders. To schedule a review with the EH&S team, contact Tim Brey at 415.866.7276.

Hazardous Materials Inventory/Management Plans

Construction of hazardous-materials-use locations in new space or renovation/change-of-use in existing space requires a Chemical Loading Analysis for approval by the State Fire Marshal.  Understanding where and how hazardous materials are used within a building is critical for the State Fire Marshal, First Responders, and future occupants of the space.  EH&S maintains an online chemical inventory and provides services related to the creation and maintenance of Chemical Loading Analysis, Hazardous Materials Inventory Statements, and Hazardous Materials Management Plans.

Additionally, EH&S manages regulatory permitting for existing hazardous-materials facilities.  Permits with the San Francisco Department of Public Health require annual submittal of chemical inventories, along with other information useful to First Responders.
