Unified Facilities Criteria - UFC 3-400-01
Design: Energy Conservation, 5 July 2002
This document, UFC 3-400-01 (.pdf, 180Kb), establishes minimum standards and policy for energy and water conservation in new construction and renovation of existing facilities. Army facilities are required to comply with the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and other Congressional actions regarding energy and water use, conservation and efficiency standards. In addition, the Army has other unique requirements to ensure the planning, programming, design and construction of energy-efficient, life-cycle cost-effective facilities that meet the mission requirements and needs of the services. These requirements are an integral part of the criteria and standards used by each of the services.
This UFC is effective upon issuance and can also be found, along with other UFC documents, on the DOD Unified Facilities Criteria Index web site.
