PURPOSE AND SCOPE.
This Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 4-510-01 provides mandatory policies and procedures for programming, planning, design, and construction throughout the lifecycle of Military Medical Facilities, also referenced as Medical Treatment Facilities (MTFs), including medical and dental treatment facilities, medical training facilities, medical research facilities, and veterinary facilities in the Military Health System (MHS). One DoD objective is to provide facilities that are responsive to the functional requirements of the Using Military Department. Federal legislation, Executive Orders (EOs), DoD Directives, Instructions, and selected technical data, publications, and standards (latest or most current editions) are referenced in the text by basic designation only and form a part of these criteria to the extent required by these references. Chapter 1 states policy and responsibilities, and the succeeding Chapters describe procedures/process and related medical-specific criteria.
UFC 4-510-01 (hereafter 'this document') implements DoD policy, procedures, and technical criteria for the programming, planning, design, and construction of facilities in the DoD Medical (DoDM) Military Construction (MILCON) program or other design and construction projects, regardless of source of funding. This document should be employed by the Using Military Departments in non-MILCON sustainment, restoration, or modernization projects, in facility additions or alteration projects, or in operations and maintenance (O&M) upgrade projects where feasible and cost effective. This document applies to only those portions of facilities referenced by the project authorization document.
In overseas locations where Status of Forces Agreements (SOFA), local host country technical criteria and standards, or other local circumstances conflict with the criteria in this document, alternate design approaches shall be developed to achieve the intent of the criteria without compromising life safety or the safeguarding of persons and property, and shall be reviewed and approved by the respective Design and Construction Agent.
