Building or renovating a facility
Facilities must adhere to the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Z8000 standard for the planning, design and construction of health-care facilities.
Renovations should not start without the College’s input and the involvement of an interdisciplinary design team (IDT) of experts.
Submit details of the proposed renovations to the College for final comment to ensure there are no accreditation concerns.
