Working with the Building Official

All projects will need to comply with the International Code Council family of codes and State of Utah amendments as approved by the Uniform Building Codes Commission.

Design professionals are encouraged to contact the building official having jurisdiction early in the design process. Final construction documents will need to be reviewed and approved for code compliance prior to construction. Construction change orders will generally need to be reviewed for code compliance prior to construction implementation.

The University has its own Building Official, Bryan Romney, AIA/ICC, who is the authority having jurisdiction for projects administered directly by the University. Bryan can be reached by phone at (801) 581-5953 or at bryan.romney@fm.utah.edu. John Staheli is the University's Building Plans Examiner and 4-way inspector who works under the supervision of the Building Official. John can be reached at (801) 362-0182.

The Building Official for the State Division of Facilities Construction and Management (DFCM) is the authority having jurisdiction for projects administered by DFCM--unless DFCM delegates that authority to the University's Building Official. See http://dfcm.utah.gov/dfcm/building-official.html.
