Date published 31/03/2017

Further to our News item of 15 March 2017, we are pleased to advise that publication of documentation produced as a result of the AusHFG Review of Item Coding and Naming Conventions is complete.

The outcomes of the Review included the adoption of new naming and coding conventions that give the AusHFG item library greater rigour and will optimise its use within contemporary design, FFE procurement and asset documentation environments.

Documents have been uploaded to the AusHFG website as follows:

On the Standard Components page https://healthfacilityguidelines.com.au/standard-components :

  • Room Data Sheets and Room Layouts for each Standard Component, displaying updated item names and codes

On the Project Resources page https://healthfacilityguidelines.com.au/content/project-resources :

  • AusHFG Revit model version 2
  • AusHFG Revit model version 2 - Shared Parameter File
  • a new resource – the AusHFG Item Control Schedule, which includes details of the item naming and coding conventions, plus Revit family and type names for items in use in the model
  • an expanded Standard Components Document Register

Documents showing the previously employed naming and coding conventions will continue to be available on the AusHFG website, to support projects where the existing conventions remain in use.  In this respect, full sets of Room Layout Sheets and Room Data Sheets are provided on the Project Resources page, and individual Standard Component documentation with previous names and codes can be found in the Archive section.

The scope of this publication has focused on updated item coding and naming, rationalisation of duplicate items and alignment of documentation. It has not incorporated any redesign of Standard Components.  For more information about the publication and AHIA’s forward plan for Standard Component design reviews, please see the Prepublication Information Sheet in our News item of 15 March 2017.

AHIA would like to extend its thanks to the many industry and jurisdictional representatives that contributed to this body of work or provided feedback during the public comment periods.
