A REVIEW OF STUDIES OF ECONOMIES IN SCHOOLHOUSE CONSTRUCTION.
DOHERTY, LEO D.; WHEATLEY, ARTRELLE
ECONOMIES IN PLANNING AND DESIGNING BEGIN WITH THE WISE CHOICE OF AN ARCHITECT. COMPLETE INFORMATION ON BUILDING NEEDS, ENROLLMENT PROJECTIONS, AND PROGRAM MUST BE AVAILABLE. INCLUSION OF MULTIPLE-USE ROOMS, MINIMAL PERIMETER WALLS, LOWERED CEILINGS, MINIMAL WASTE SPACE, MINIMAL USE OF GLASS, AND USE OF STOCK PLANS ARE CONCEPTS WHICH CAN EFFECT ECONOMIES. FURTHER ECONOMIES CAN BE EFFECTED BY CAREFUL SITE SELECTION, DEVELOPMENT, AND UTILIZATION. PREFABRICATED SCHOOLS AND MODULAR DESIGN ARE NEWER CONCEPTS SUGGESTED AS EFFICIENT USES OF MATERIALS. LOW COST MAINTENANCE CONSTRUCTION CAN SAVE MUCH MONEY. USE OF TEMPORARY BUILDINGS SHOULD BE AVOIDED. CAREFUL FINANCING OF BUILDING PROJECTS WILL HELP REDUCE COSTS ESPECIALLY IF PROPER TIMING IS INCORPORATED. TIMING IS ESSENTIAL TO THE ENTIRE CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS INCLUDED. (RH)
