The UC Berkeley campus has embarked on an ambitious program to renew or replace buildings and infrastructure. The mission of the Health & Construction Workgroup is to help reduce the impact of UC Berkeley facilities construction on faculty, staff and students. Our goal is to foster and advocate for the physical and mental health of the campus community in the planning, design, and construction or renovation of buildings by working with the academic and service departments involved in the projects.
The multi-departmental group meets monthly to discuss issues raised by construction or temporary relocation (surge). Representatives of other relevant units and departments are brought into the group's meetings when their help is needed to solve a problem.
|Who We Are||
The Health & Construction Workgroup is made up of representatives of campus units with a responsibility in one or more areas related to planning and construction or employee safety and welfare. Each member contributes his or her special expertise to the workgroup.
