About the
FGI Guidelines

The FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction documents are the most widely recognized standard for planning, designing, and constructing health and residential care facilities. The Guidelines documents consolidate minimum program, space, risk assessment, infection prevention, architectural detail, surface, built-in furnishing, and building system requirements in one convenient place. States and federal agencies use the Guidelines to regulate new construction and major renovations of health and residential care facilities.

FGI provides limited, free access to the Guidelines documents with an account. This complimentary use is limited to 10 pages, 3 times per month.
