BRDO initiates a review of construction standards for hospitals

Outdated technical solutions, green-blue walls, foot-pedal toilets, huge utility rooms and small operating rooms… These are just a few examples of state construction standards in the area of design and construction of health care facilities that have been operating since the Soviet Union and until today!

The BRDO, the Ministry of Regional Construction and the Medical Constructor Project initiate a professional dialogue on the improvement of state construction standards in the area of design and construction of health care facilities. It’s time to admit that we live in the 21st century, and the regulations should be adapted to modern challenges (DBN V.2.2-10:2017 to replace the DBN V.2.2-10-2001).

One of the key features of European legislation is the predictability of processes and changes. This allows the owners of health care facilities, investors and project companies to develop their own strategic plans to reconstruct, create and manage a heal care facility. The internal culture of education and work in the medical sphere developed for decades will be taken into account when making amendments to the construction standards and regulations. However, the archaic nature of certain provisions we inherited should not be a barrier to the development of innovative design and planning decisions, the ultimate goal of which is to improve the conditions for patients and medical staff.

The discussion will be conducted in the form of electronic surveys, round tables, expert discussions. Join us to work together to transform the health care system.

The draft DBN is available here.
