Educational Specifications for Development of an East Side Educational Facility.
Landsburg, David L.; And Others
Since fall 1979, Pima Community College's East Education Center has provided educational services emphasizing lifelong learning and adult education in a leased office building. The building has proven to be an excellent educational facility in many ways; nevertheless, because of its small size and inefficient use of space, in 1979 the Board of Governors voted to build a permanent east side educational facility. The specifications contained in this report were developed to assist in the planning of a facility of not more than 35,000 square feet of inside space, which would not cost more than $3,500,000, would allow for future expansion or contraction, and would be able to house introductory and selected advanced courses, as well as some occupational offerings. The report begins with a statement of institutional philosophy and then assesses the desirable features and drawbacks of the current facility. It then presents general guidelines regarding the efficient use of internal space, flexibility, the future use of solar power, and pedestrian flow. It goes on to state requirements for office space for faculty and administration, storage space, instructional areas, the Learning Resource Center, and a student lounge. Additionally, specifications are presented for external areas. Finally, plans for the use and growth of the facility are discussed. (AYC)
