Our planning and development guidelines assist regions, program divisions, health service boards, agency managers and consultants in establishing a consistent approach and best practice to the management, planning, design and implementation of all capital investment projects regardless of size, cost, complexity and source of funds. They are intended as guidelines rather than mandatory requirements.
The mandatory requirements are contained in the policies and legislations applying to the planning, building and development industry. Links for more information can be accessed throughout this page.
These guidelines can assist in the asset, risk and property management of capital works projects.
The following design guidelines are available through these links:

The Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority is committed to social procurement and the difference it can make to the lives of all Victorians. Suppliers who can demonstrate value-for-money considerations that are not solely focused on price, and incorporate a balanced judgement of a range of financial and non-financial factors such as enabling more jobs and training opportunities, or other social and sustainable outcomes will be preferred.
These guidelines can assist in the initial planning and benchmarking of capital works projects.
