Independent School Building Projects . State of the Art Recommendations.
Hood, Diane M.
A previous report, Independent Schools Building Research Project (December 1972), on the current methods of building independent school facilities is summarized in this booklet. The summary is intended to increase the level of awareness of school administrators who are involved with building programs. Since survey results indicated that the majority of schools utilize the traditional architect, contractor, and client relationship, the traditional method is evaluated here, and it s inadequacies as reported by school administrators are discussed. New techniques developed to overcome the stresses and inadequacies of the traditional procedure are listed. Among these techniques, the design/build method is recommended to best fulfill the objectives for improved building programs in independent schools. The design/build technique is defined, two examples of the technique in operation are provided, a model design/build project for an independent school is suggested, and the advantages and disadvantages of this method are offered.
