From Concept to Commissioning: Planning, Design, and Construction of Campus Facilities.
Guckert, Donald, Ed.
To address the growing interest in campus planning, design, and construction projects, this anthology compiles articles previously published in "Facilities Manager." The beginning chapters focus on campus architecture, master planning, and project planning. The mid-section of the book offers information on the critical issues of time management, expectations of the architect, why university construction projects are so costly, and the technological trends that are changing the way future projects are viewed. The volume ends with a collection of articles that address steps to ensure successful outcomes: choosing an optimal project delivery approach, defining the need and role of the project manager, and effectively and successfully commissioning a new facility. The chapters are: (1) "Continuity and Contradiction in Contemporary Campus Architecture" (Werner K. Sensbach); (2) "Planning for Master Planning: Setting Realistic Expectations" (John R. Reeve and Marion B. Smith); (3) "Pre-Design Planning" (Ksenia J. Merck and William F. Merck); (4) "Fire the Architect! The Conflicting Perspectives of Architects and Facilities Managers" (Michael Haggans); (5) "Why Do University Buildings Cost so Much?" (E. Gene Kershner); (6) "Timing is Everything: Meeting the Challenge of Aggressive Project Schedules" (Donald Guckert); (7) "Designing Intelligent Campus Buildings for the Information Age" (Jack Caloz); (8) "The Role and Relevance of Project Managers" (Jeff Griffin); (9) "Partnering and Team Building: Applying New Tools to Project Management" (Boone Hellman); (10) "Choosing the Best Delivery Method for Your Facility Project" (Blake V. Peck); and (11) "Commissioning New Construction: Getting It Right the First Time" (Robin Smith). (EV)
