A Comparison of the Costs of Building Elements Related to Design Requirements for Selected University and Non-University Buildings in Ontario. Volume 4.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
The Committee on Capital Financing of the Council of Ontario Universities set up the Task Force on Building Costs in June 1971 to analyze in detail comparative building cost data. The first phase of the study involved describing and comparing in detail the initial costs and design requirements of a group of university and non-university buildings. The second phase is to investigate long-term cost and performance factors, including costs of maintenance and operation, and the effectiveness of the buildings in use. This report covers only the first phase of the study, the specific objectives of which were: (1) to develop an understanding of the components of cost in university and non-university buildings; (2) to develop and utilize a methodology that will enable the ready comparison of components of cost; and (3) to provide the necessary descriptive information so that a cost/design comparison might be undertaken. Also included is an extensive supplement that contains the elemental cost analysis and performance and statistical data on which the report is based. (Author/HS)
