Design Guidance for Green Health Care Facilities
August 21, 2007

Working to make advanced energy efficiency guidance mainstream, ASHRAE is developing a code-intended baseline sustainability standard for health care facilities.

Proposed Standard 189.2, Design, Construction and Operation of High-Performance Green Health Care Facilities, will prescribe the procedures, methods and documentation requirements related to high performance green health care facilities.

It will apply to patient care areas and related support areas, including hospitals, nursing facilities and outpatient facilities. The standard will also apply to new buildings, additions to existing buildings and alterations to existing buildings.

ASHRAE currently is seeking members to form a committee to write the standard. In addition, public comment is being sought until Sept. 3 on the proposed title, purpose and scope of the standard. For more information, visit, and look for the standards action notice dated July 20.
