Required Performance Criteria

Owner/ Facilities Operations Manager:

  2. Smoking policy will state where smoking outside of building can occur, such that design considerations will not introduce ETS into the building from outdoor sources.

  1. Design documentation must state explicitly that the newly constructed portions of the building were designed assuming that smoking would not occur in the those portions.
  2. Design documentation shall show the designated smoking areas and non-smoking areas outside of the building.
