COMPONENTS FOR SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION IN THE MID-HUDSON REGION. PROGRESS REPORT 1.
GREEN, ALAN C.; AND OTHERS
THIS REPORT IS PART 1 OF A FEASIBILITY STUDY TO SAMPLE APPROPRIATE ASPECTS OF THE SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION FACTORS IN NEW YORK STATE. THE STUDY IS TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT PROCESS IS APPLICABLE TO SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION IN THE MID-HUDSON VALLEY. THE STUDY ALSO EXPLORES POSSIBLE MEANS BY WHICH SUCH SCHOOL BUILDINGS MIGHT BE ACCOMPLISHED. THE USE OF THE SCSD APPROACH FOR ANTICIPATING CONSTRUCTION PROBLEMS IS JUSTIFIED ON THE BASIS OF ITS SUCCESSFUL APPLICATION IN OTHER GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS. THE REPORT REVIEWS THE SCSD OBJECTIVES OF DEVELOPING STANDARDIZED BUT VERSATILE COMPONENTS, REDUCTION OF COST AND TIME, ASCERTAINING A LARGE MARKET FOR THE MANUFACTURER, REAPPROPRIATION OF ARCHITECTUAL DESIGN TIME AND FLEXIBILITY FOR INDIVIDUAL DISTRICT DESIGN. THE BASIC STEPS IN THE SCSD PROCESS ARE PRESENTED. THE STEPS ARE RELATED TO THE MID-HUDSON VALLEY PROJECT BY A COMPARISON TO SIMILAR PROJECTS BEING CONDUCTED IN CALIFORNIA. (GM)
