Abstract:

The volume considers the applicability of an innovation in building design, called building systems, to military hospitals. It defines building systems, identifies the problems in current building design which building systems are said to alleviate, and evaluates a number of building systems, modules, and components with regard to their ability to solve current problems. It concludes with recommendations for a building system to be adopted for the prototype hospital, based largely on its being available for a design which is planned to begin very soon, and thus serves as back-up for the plans presented in Volume 4 AD-722 974.
