SCSD: The Project and the Schools. A Report from Educational Facilities Laboratories.
Benet, James; And Others
SCSD, a structurally coordinated school building components system, is a highly automated method of building new schools that creatively meet the needs of the ever changing educational environment through functional and flexible planning. Examples of why SCSD high schools are efficient, flexible, and spatially planned, are cited. Environmental requirements are given for--(1) heating/ventilation, (2) air conditioning, (3) lighting/ceiling, (4) storage and equipment, and (5) partitions. Photographs and diagrams demonstrate the interaction of the subsystem components. The evaluation concludes that society needs both higher quality and larger quantities of school buildings to meet the complex learning facility requirements of the present and future. (TG)
