VA Hospital Building System Development Study

The VA Hospital Building System (VAHBS) has been used successfully on many VA projects over the years.  Certain elements of this system have evolved; steel structures, instead of concrete, are often used, and minor changes in the organization and an increase in the number and overall height of sub zones for various disciplines have been implemented.  The original study was completed in 1972 and revised in 1977.  Each file may be downloaded separately, or the entire study may be downloaded via compressed file (22MB). To receive a copy, please download from our FTP site at http://downloads.va.gov/files/CFM-TIL/vahbs/
