SPACE: Space Planning and Cost Estimating Model for Higher Education.
Smith, Donovan E.; Wagner, W. Gary
This paper presents SPACE, a space planning and cost estimating simulation model designed to allow analysis of alternative class scheduling patterns and their consequent resource demands. Several illustrative examples of the model's use are given, with documentation of the validation procedures using data from the University of California. The examples show that changes in class scheduling patterns have no significant effect on total operating and capital costs. A listing of the computer program and the input data specifications are included in the appendix. (Author)
