Office Furniture Standards 

UC Davis Health offers multiple office furniture layouts to accommodate the various working styles of our staff. All surface materials, finishes, and upholstery selections are standardized to allow for ease of reconfigures, reuse of materials, and cohesiveness throughout the Health System.

While UC Davis Health has three furniture manufacturers available to choose from: Steelcase, Herman Miller, and Kimball, Steelcase is typically supplied and provided in private and open office spaces. However, based upon project location, an alternative manufacture maybe a viable option. All office furniture options include an ergonomic task chair with an adjustable back, seat-height, armrests, lumbar support, and a five-star base; storage option, and a height-adjustable desk to meet ergonomic needs.

Note: Accommodations can be made through the Worker’s Compensation Department for specific pieces that need to be added to stations if the furniture does not meet your ergonomic needs. These will be handled on a case-by-case basis and would need to be accompanied with an ergonomic evaluation.

Furniture Governance

Facilities, Planning and Development division has developed this governance document based upon UCOP policies and furniture contracts to provide definitions, guidelines and procedures that will optimize the use of resources and ensure thoughtful and informed decisions are made when it comes to the selection, procurement and use of furniture in our facilities.

UC Davis Health has developed standards per building to provide a cohesive look and feel to the space, as well as to allow for the utilization of our furniture inventory as much as possible. This allows for significant cost savings to UCDH, as well as decreases in the lead time on installation and reconfiguration timelines.
