Manual of Planning Standards for School Buildings.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Educational Facilities Planning.
In New York State, all plans and specifications for the erection, repair, enlargement, or remodeling of school buildings in any public school district must be reviewed and approved by the Division of Educational Facilities Planning. The Division also strives to offer advice and counsel to school districts and architects to help them resolve their school building problems. This 1975 edition of the manual includes all amendment and revisions to the original manual issued in 1965. Both minimum requirements, which must be followed, and optional recommendations are included. The words "shall" and "must" indicate requirements "should" and "may" indicate recommendations. The requirements and recommendations are arranged under the headings of structural and safety planning; materials; visual environment; site and utilities; mechanical and electrical planning; heating, ventilating, and air conditioning; plumbing and gas facilities; electrical work; and existing buildings. Thirteen appendices contain additional material, and an index concludes the manual. (Author/MLF)
