School Building in Early Development. Part 3. Project Implementation.
Giertz, L. M.; Dijkgraaf, C.
International School Building News, v13 n1 1977
The first two publications in this series dealt generally with school building problems in developing nations. This third part offers more direct guidance. Described in some detail are organizational fundamentals and tools that depend on universal similarities in building practice and have, therefore, been recommended for use internationally. A four-step sequence examining projects in developing countries is proposed as a way of solving problems that often arise in construction projects. The first step is the project as such--what normally is included in project administration, design, and construction--then analyzing the backgrounds: the building industry of which the project is a part, then the national scene on which the project itself as well as the building industry has to play its role, and last the international surroundings and relationships that may influence the project. Using building methods and materials that generate development of the domestic building industry is stressed as a responsibility of the implementor and the organizational consequences of this responsibility are described.
