From the Ground Up...A Construction Manual for Institutions of Higher Learning Prepared for the New Hampshire Higher Education Facilities Commission.
Donatelli, Benjamin; Binning, Dennis
Emphasis in this manual is on translating an institutional plan into the activities required for the capital expansion of an institution of higher education. The total institutional planning function is described and analyzed in detail in order to implement facility construction plans in an orderly and cost-effective manner. Four major categories are identified: management planning, physical plant planning, financial planning, and project management planning. Separate sections of this guide deal with: the building system; institutional long-range planning; researching for building; sources of federal funds; the college-architect relationship; innovation in design; project management; and bidding and completing the building. A bibliography is included. (LBH)
