Generic School Grounds Design Brief.
Dorset County Council, Dorchester (England).
This document was produced to provide architects, planners, and builders with an educational design brief for Dorset, England school grounds. The County Education Planning and Development Department will use it as an educational and curriculum statement to complement their more detailed and specific building briefs. The brief uses many of the ideas and some of the text of "The Outdoor Classroom: Building Bulletin 71." The brief addresses: educational and social demands on school grounds; consultation; site survey, appraisal, and records; optional layouts; site of buildings; building, configuration, fabric, and services; access and circulation; car parks; site boundaries and enclosures; hard play areas and surfaces; site furniture; earth modeling and soils; grass sports and recreation areas; soft landscapes; growing plants; keeping animals; advance work; aftercare; and statutory and legal requirements. (Appendices contain possible site features, a management policy statement of objectives, and a list of plants.) (EV)
