The purpose of the Low Carbon, Resilience and Environmental Sustainability Guidelines for Health Care New Construction (LCRES Guidelines) is to enable implementation of low-carbon, climate-resilient and environmentally sustainable strategies as part of new construction and major renovations of acute, long-term care and other healthcare facilities.
Applying the LCRES Guidelines during the planning phases will produce deliverables, requirements, design strategies and accountability mechanisms to be embedded into project documentation and contracts. This document is a resource for project managers, planners, architects, engineers, contractors, operators and other members of the project team.
