Guidelines for Planning in Colleges and Universities. Volume 4: Physical Plant Planning, Facilities Studies.
Pinnell, Charles; Wacholder, Michael
The fourth of a five-volume series concerned with higher educational planning provides techniques for the estimation of an institution's facility requirements. The facilities are discussed within the framework of two broad categories--(1) academic program facilities, and (2) residential housing facilities. The academic program facilities provide for classrooms, laboratories, offices, recreational facilities and other associated space as required to conduct the program of a university. The residential housing facilities provide for student housing and in some cases faculty and staff housing. Planning for the academic facilities requires an inventory of existing facilities including a quality analysis, facility utilization research, and estimations of space requirements for both teaching and non-teaching facilities. The aspects of an automated system of master schedule construction and student sectioning are briefly presented. Residential facilities planning is based on a thorough analysis of the student body based on marital status, number of dependents, sex, and college year. Numerous formulas and specific numerical values are supplied as part of the recommended techniques involved in estimation. An appendix includes quality analysis worksheets and housing guidelines.
