Hospital design guidelines under review

The Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority (VHHSBA) is revising its guidelines for engineering services, Design Guide for Hospitals and Day Procedure Centres (DGHDPC) Part E.

The guidelines were last updated in 2004. The intent of the revised guidelines is to provide relevant minimum requirements for engineering services for new capital projects in healthcare.

As part of this work, the VHHSBA is conducting a survey to better understand broad stakeholder viewpoints on the existing guidelines and to identify potential focus areas for the development of the new DGHDPC Part E.

Anyone who is interested in engineering infrastructure is encouraged to respond. The survey is open until July 19.

You can read the current guidelines here, or click here to take the survey.
