DEVELOPING A PHYSICAL PLANT FOR ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY. PROCEEDINGS, CONFERENCE ON JUNIOR COLLEGE FACILITIES, (TAMPA, JANUARY 23-25, 1964), VOL. 2.
MCCLURE, H.L.
WITH A LIMITED BUILDING BUDGET OF TWO MILLION DOLLARS, SOUTHERN TECHNICAL INSTITUTE WAS ABLE TO CONSTRUCT A PERMANENT PHYSICAL PLANT CAPABLE OF HANDLING PRESENT AND FUTURE ENROLLMENTS. THE PROCEDURES TAKEN AND THE RESULTING CAMPUS FACILITIES ARE BRIEFLY OUTLINED, AND SOME GENERAL PLANNING SUGGESTIONS ADVANCED BY THE AUTHOR. MANY OF THE COST-REDUCTION PROCEDURES ARE UNIQUE IN THEIR DEVIATION FROM ACCEPTED STATE POLICIES. FOR INSTANCE, S.T.I. DEPARTED FROM THE ESTABLISHED POLICY OF REQUIRING A "LOCK AND KEY" JOB AND ALLOCATED ALMOST THE TOTAL BUDGET FOR CONSTRUCTION AND ONLY A SMALL PORTION FOR EQUIPMENT. TO PROVIDE EQUIPMENT, MANY OF THE FURNITURE ITEMS WERE BUILT BY SCHOOL CARPENTERS AND THEN INSTALLED BY THE FACULTY AND STAFF. THE RESULTANT PHYSICAL PLANT PROVIDED SOME UNIQUE FEATURES WHICH ARE OUTLINED AND INCLUDE SUCH ITEMS AS HAVING ALL THE BUILDINGS CONNECTED BY COVERED WALKWAYS. FIVE GENERAL SUGGESTIONS ARE GIVEN BY THE AUTHOR WHICH MAY HELP PLANNERS PROVIDE SIMILAR FEATURES ON LIMITED BUDGETS. IN EVALUATING THE RESULTS IN OPERATION, IT WAS EVIDENT THAT CLOSE COOPERATION AND COORDINATION OF DEPARTMENTAL AND ARCHITECTURAL PERSONNEL COULD PROVIDE AN EFFECTIVE AND UNIQUE FACILITY ON A LIMITED BUDGET.
