Back to Resources

The purpose of the Low Carbon Resilience and Environmental Sustainability Guidelines for Health-care New Construction (the LCRES Guidelines) is to provide a set of recommendations to inform the detailed design phase of new and replacement construction for acute and long-term care facilities.

This document is meant to inform engineers, coordinators, architects, contractors and operators, planners, and other members of the project team in the development of components specific to the Statement of Requirements and the Low Carbon Resilience and Environmental Sustainability Scope of Work.
