Housing in a Hurry. Proceedings of North Atlantic Conference. (Cambridge, Massachusetts, March 18, 1972.)
Lamison, Robert M.; And Others
Administrators from the Universities of Delaware, Rhode Island, and Vermont describe the processes that were followed on their respective campuses in the construction of economical and rapidly completed student housing. The design-build approach was utilized in which contractors prepare plans to meet the client's budget and facility requirements. This method (1) permits the client to select the design most suitable to his needs and budgets; (2) necessitates that the client incur costs only after the selection of the design, thereby avoiding costly architectural drafting; and (3) assures that the architect's service (contractor paid) are directed toward team cooperation between the contractor and the client. Three speeches provide detailed accounts of the procedures followed beginning with the initial decision to construct housing to the completed buildings. (MLF)
