Preconstruction Planning for Educational Facilities: A Handbook for School Business Officials. Research Bulletin No. 13.
Strevell, Wallace H.
Each of 16 authors treats a technical aspect of preconstruction planning in this bulletin. Application of systems logic appears in the organization of the chapters. The problem is defined as a survey procedure in chapters discussing the school business official, planning terminology, and staff structure. Variations of objective synthesis are presented in chapters about coordinating school planning with urban research, plant evaluation, financial resources and constraints, master plan priorities, and campus planning. Patterns of alternatives are analyzed in chapters concerning metropolitan school sites, decentralization versus centralization in urban development, computing school plan capacity, and comparative technology is school design. Implementation of the systems approach is shown in chapters about design for operation and maintenance, security mandates, selection of furniture and equipment, and public information in bond elections. Appendixes contain a glossary and plant evaluation standards. (Author/MLF)
