Campus Housing Construction and Renovation: An Analysis of Cost and Design.
Grimm, James C.; Dunkel, Norbert W.
This monograph provides ideas and information to those professionals involved in planning and developing student living environments. The information is a compilation of data received from 42 institutions throughout the United States and Canada. The institutions provided information on 25 new construction projects (12 relating to apartment-type facilities and 13 outlining suite-type arrangements and other non-apartment-type facilities) and 17 renovation projects. The results and analysis of the study in terms of construction costs and design features are divided into three categories: new construction, renovation, and food service. For each facility's project, construction summary data and floor plans are provided. Appendices contain the survey forms, summary data tables of construction and renovation costs, and contact information for surveyed facilities. (EV)
