Educational Building Source Book
Met with an OECS academic consultant today about putting together the Caribbean's first Educational Building Source Book. On completion it should serve as a guide for all academic development in the Caribbean. A serious undertaking of which I am writing the first draft for. It will exist in two parts one for administrators and another for design professionals. The first part, for administrators while be comprised mostly of questions to raise, depending on the type of development (early education, secondary, tertiary, etc) regarding the use and users of the facility, with expected answers and advice on the reverse. The other aspect of course will be more in depth compiled of existing examples, profiling professionals involved, materials as well as the complimentary drawings. This will serve as a more detailed document developed from the likes of the PAHO/WHO disaster mitigation documents and seminars for Health Facilities.
