NOTICE: VA Design Guides are in a continual process of refinement/update and new Design Guides are being developed. Update will be incremental; completed Guides will be posted on this site and noted as current. As much information in these Guides is dated, it is recommended that they be used with caution to assure that current standards of the health care industry are addressed in meeting VA’s needs. A planning/design consultant may be helpful in confirming the validity of project specific data.
Design Guides are intended to help speed the design process, control cost, avoid errors and omissions, and get value for dollars spent. Design guides are developed in partnership with the using service and are benchmarked with similar private sector guides. They are to be applied flexibly, not as rigid standards.
