Design Quality Indicator for Health 2

The Construction Industry Council (CIC) has launched an updated version of its design quality evaluation tool, the Design Quality Indicator for Health 2 (DQIfH2), which will contribute to improved design, long term functionality and sustainability of future hospital new build and major adaption and refurbishment projects. 
 
This latest version enables the DQIfH2 to be used by healthcare organisations and their key stakeholders to engage earlier in the consultation and design process of all types of healthcare buildings. It is designed not only for design appraisal but also to do a staged review of other NHS estates assurances processes covering impact on the procurement process at an early stage, such as carbon reduction and sustainability, infection prevention and control, fire safety, planning, BIM etc.
  
Graham Watts, Chief Executive of CIC, said: ‘‘Improving quality in the built environment is at the core of CIC’s mission and the new DQI for Health 2 aligns with the work that CIC is doing elsewhere, in terms of improving building design, safety, quality and procurement.  This is not just for projects related to healthcare but also other construction sectors that can have a direct influence on health and wellbeing in the UK, such as housing and education.’’
