The NIH is a progressive and dynamic biomedical research institution where state-of-the-art be state of the art. It is the NIH’s intent to build and maintain the physical plant and facilities in accordanc It has been the NIH experience that renovation/rehabilitation of existing facilities do not lend themselves plumbing systems. The architect/engineer (A/E) should be alerted to this situation and make an evaluation early in such findings, provide recommendations, and report them to the Project Officer for a decision on how to
