Renovating Early and Middle 20th Century Schools [Conference] (St. Louis, Missouri, June 24-26, 1999).
American Inst. of Architects, Washington, DC.
School architects, construction managers, and school administrators convened at a conference to examine the question of renovation or replacement of aging public schools, and to address issues from turn-of-the-century architectural features to sources of renovation financing. This paper contrasts the distinguishing characteristics of early-20th century and mid-20th century schools and addresses the unique design principles and materials typical of the facilities constructed during theses eras. Other topics include the evaluation and assessment of existing school buildings, the tools and techniques for condition assessment and management of K-12 renovation projects, construction management as a construction delivery method of school renovation, the role of the architect as construction manager, and construction scheduling. Final topics concern renovation programs that preserve valuable resources and alternative funding possibilities such as public/private development partnerships. Contains a list of conference speakers. (GR)
