Working to make advanced energy-efficiency guidance mainstream, the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineering (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 also will apply to new buildings, as well as additions and alterations to existing buildings.
