UFC 4-740-14 provides guidelines for evaluating and planning the site, determining programming requirements, establishing space distribution needs, determining building size, and designing all outdoor and indoor spaces for Tri-Service and Marine Corps child development center (CDC) facilities to support the child development program. (Throughout this UFC, the term Tri-services is intended to include the Marine Corps, except where specifically indicated.) The information in this
UFC applies to the design of all new construction projects as well as renovation projects. Renovation projects should update existing facilities to meet the guidance and criteria within budgetary constraints. Further, this UFC serves as an ongoing program management tool within the Tri-Service child development programs. This UFC is not intended as a substitution during design for thorough review by individual Child Development Program Managers in each of the Services.
