The Conversion of Found Space for Educational Use.
Meier, James Paul
This study explores some experiences in recycling buildings for schools and suggests a background to use in planning and evaluating this approach to school space acquisition. Such factors as educational program, physical environment, building codes, cost and financing, legal issues, administrative processes and time, and political and social concerns are considered in the study. Case studies on schools in recycled buildings, derived from school visits, interviews, and examinations of files, provided the primary source of information. Laws, State administrative practices, current planning considerations, and building codes were studied separately. The study focuses on school facility practices in New York State, with secondary attention, primarily for comparative purposes, to Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. A computer program was used to examine the relative costs of found space facilities to new school buildings. (Author/MLF)
