The Dallas Independent School District provides this handbook presenting administrative, planning, design, and technical guidelines for those involved in the design and construction process of new school facilities, and expansions or renovations of existing schools. It focuses on the design specifications and administrative guidelines for the construction of a new elementary school. Included is a listing of technical master specifications sections developed by the school district to convey specific detailed recommendations for all construction elements. All of the requirements included can be categorized as one of the following types: (1) general considerations that guide the architect and contractor in setting the overall design concepts of the school; (2) space requirements that describe the number of spaces and their size requirements (minimum width, height, and length); as well as detailed information about each individual space. An appendix contains lists of equipment that may be included in each individual space. (GR)
