This report, the third in a series which presents the results of a systems analysis of the problem of providing science and engineering buildings at the university level, is a technical manual for using the Academic Building Systems (ABS) approach in programing, designing, and constructing such facilities. The document presents (1) planning concepts, procedures, and cost/performance control; and (2) one section each on the five ABS subsystems (structure, HVAC, lighting/ceiling, partitions, and utility distribution), their relation to non-ABS subsystems, and the two ABS demonstration projects. Each subsystem description includes performance, design, and construction characteristics. Many diagrams, tables, and figures illustrate the text. Related documents are EA 003 886 and EA 003 888.
