Career Education Facilities: A Planning Guide for Space and Station Requirements. A Report
Woodruff, Alan P.
This publication provides the educational planner and the architect with some suggestions concerning models by which they may plan new flexible-use, shared-space facilities and supports the models with guidelines for the development of facilities and educational programs for occupational education. In addition to discussing the financial advantages of space and equipment sharing by more than one program of a career or occupational education center, the publication is a comprehensive guide to planning for all the facilities likely to be encountered in career education. Each presentation of facility planning is divided into a discussion of program and space relationships, an identification of the individual stations and areas within each of the cluster laboratories and of the relationships between these stations and the shared services of the laboratory and the cluster as a whole, and a table of space requirements for most of the individual stations required in each laboratory. These tables include the space required for each station, plus a guideline percent of stations that should be allocated to each area. (Author/MLF)
