This guide, a collection of 14 articles by experts in the field, highlights the key features related to the planning and construction of educational facilities. The guide is to be used as a tool in the planning, design, remodeling, and construction of educational facilities. The focus is on practice rather than theory. The book starts by dealing with a feasibility study and develops the master plan in the first two chapters. Chapter 3 details the important topic of writing the educational specifications before turning to the selection of the architect in chapter 4. Site selection is the order of business for chapter 5. The next three chapters deal with spaces for learning, interiors, and the visual environment. The next four chapters deal with the issues of financing, construction management, construction observation and administration. The last two chapters focus attention upon two rather unique topics: remodeling and the challenges of building schools in a rapidly growing population. (SI)
