NIH Design Requirements Manual  


Revision 2.0: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Design Requirements Manual (DRM) establishes policy, design requirements, standards, and technical criteria for use in planning, programming, and designing NIH owned, leased, operated, and funded building and facilities. The DRM is the only detailed design requirements and guidance manual of its kind. The information complied within the 2024 DRM is the result of technical studies that have set numerous national and international standards, lessons learned and ever-advancing architectural and engineering technologies used in the design and construction of NIH facilities.
