The Academy of Architecture for Health presents two nationally renowned speakers who will update you on the 2014 FGI Guideline proposals and receive your feedback. Come to The American Institute of Architects headquarters and learn how the 2014 Facilities Guidelines will affect you.
Big changes are coming to The FGI Guidelines - the minimum ‘code’ standards for healthcare facilities in 44 states. Input is needed from the entire design profession (architects, engineers, interior designers, owners, AHJ’S, medical professionals, equipment providers, and researcher professionals) on a series of proposed key new requirements (and removal of outdated requirements) in the draft of the 2014 edition. There are proposals that affect critical care, emergency care, behavioral health, imaging, and nursing units as well as architectural details.
