Abstract:

The booklet contains descriptions, photographs, drawings and cost analyses of various types of new buildings with built-in fallout protection. Architects and engineers knowledgeable in shielding techniques can incorporate the additional fallout protection for little, if any, increase in cost, whether the building is a school, bank, library, church, dormitory, office building, industrial facility or home for the aged. The shielding techniques are applicable to all types of buildings. The projects shown here are attractive and contain fallout shelter in aboveground as well as belowground locations. The shelter areas are in continuous use as part of the normal building function and have been provided without adversely affecting the cost or appearance.
