This document attempts to provide a "state of the art" study of the application of building systems to construction with emphasis on educational facilities. Although directed primarily at the architect and the building team, this material can also be useful to those who contemplate using building systems. Building systems are considered part of a more comprehensive systems approach to design and construction emphasizing the importance of the procedures and techniques of application. The first section surveys means of learning about the use of building systems, and the second describes a generalized model of a project that utilizes building systems and includes discussions of programing, design, and multistage bidding. The text is supported by sample bidding sheets, drawings, letters of intent, and a 29-item annotated bibliography. (Author/MLF)
