Projects involving replacement of, alterations of, and additions to existing licensed facilities shall be planned and phased so that construction will minimize disruptions of facility operations.  Facility access, exit ways, safety provisions, and building and life safety systems shall be maintained so that the health and safety of the occupants will not be jeopardized during construction.  Additional safety and operating measures shall be planned, documented, and executed to compensate for hazards related to construction or renovation activities to maintain an equivalent degree of health, safety, and operational effectiveness to that required by rules, standards, and codes for a facility not under construction or renovation.
