An Investigation of Costs of Inexpensive Enclosures for Recreational Areas.
Koppes, Wayne F.
Information is presented regarding costs of inexpensive types of clear-span structures that enclose areas used for recreational and athletic activities. The costs of seven distinct types of readily available structures, and several variations of two of them, are analyzed and compared. These costs, including the charges for financing, operation, and maintenance as well as the initial costs, are compared for three alternative annual terms of use over periods of 5, 10, and 20 years. Detailed cost calculations for each of twelve variations of appropriate structures are presented, summarized in both tabular and graph form. Recommendations are included as to the essential features of the "ideal" structure for uses of this kind. (FS)
