Site Selection Criteria and Evaluation Handbook. 1997 Edition.
Mearig, Tim; Crittenden, Edwin; Morgan, Michael
The State of Alaska Department of Education has created a handbook to give assistance and direction to its school districts and communities in determining the suitability of various building sites for educational facilities planning. This handbook establishes a set of basic site selection elements and offers suggested evaluation criteria for rating each element's desirability and cost effectiveness. The selection elements are grouped into three major categories: social and land use factors; construction cost factors; operations and maintenance cost factors. The handbook describes the basic evaluation procedures including the ranking system for each site selection criteria. It concludes with advice on writing a site evaluation report. Appendices contain a site evaluation matrix form with the three categories and each criteria element arranged for ranking and rank totalling, and a sample site graphic analysis. (GR)
