Remodeling, Renovation, & Conversion of Educational Facilities.
Association of Physical Plant Administrators of Universities and Colleges, Washington, DC.
Based on a series of workshops, this collection of papers provides a framework for thought--emphasizing planning within time, flexibility, and maintenance constraints--as well as a practical guide for actual engineering of remodeling/renovation/conversion projects. Is remodeling always less expensive than new construction? Should high initial costs be avoided because life-cycle costing is impractical for remodeling projects? Authors address these and other cost-related subjects--real and hidden remodeling costs, cost differences between new construction and remodeling, and cost estimation in remodeling as well as discussion of inhouse versus outside contracting. Two chapters are devoted to energy conservation considerations relevant to any construction/remodeling project. Case studies are used throughout to emphasize practical applications of ideas with special focus trained on a recent, highly successful facilities conservation project at Syracuse University.
