9780736074872: Space Planning Guidelines for Campus Recreational Sport Facilities

Whether you need to make a case for new, improved, or expanded facilities or just want to see how you stack up against other schools, you'll find the information you need in Space Planning Guidelines for Campus Recreational Sport Facilities.

The book offers the latest research on campus recreational sport facilities. The National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) contracted the National Research Institute for College Recreational Sports & Wellness to survey experienced campus recreational sport administrators from nearly 200 U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities, asking not only for an inventory of existing facilities but also for opinions on whether those facilities were adequate in meeting the needs of their campuses. Those data were used in developing these space-per-student facility planning guidelines.

Space Planning Guidelines for Campus Recreational Sport Facilities presents the guidelines in a simple chart format so you can quickly and easily find the information that applies to your campus. All of the data are cross-referenced by facility type and total enrollment or school size. Guidelines are given for five facility types:
1. Total indoor space, including court and racket space and locker room space
2. Fitness facilities, including cardio equipment space, free-weight and strength equipment space, group exercise rooms, and multiuse spaces
3. Climbing and outdoor adventure facilities, including climbing walls and trip equipment storage space
4. Aquatic facilities
5. Outdoor sport facilities, including fields and courts

The book also provides a wealth of information that will help you make the most of the guidelines. You'll be given detailed instructions for applying the guidelines and a list of factors to consider when applying the guidelines so that you can be sure that the specific needs of your institution are being met. A companion Web page offers links to current field and court specifications and diagrams from numerous national associations so that you can plan for both indoor and outdoor sport spaces. You'll also find photos from some of the 2008 NIRSA Outstanding Sports Facilities Award winners. These facilities represent some of the best found on campuses today and can provide a starting point for your own facility projects.

Space Planning Guidelines for Campus Recreational Sport Facilities is the perfect resource for anyone beginning the process of planning for new or expanded facilities. Its comprehensive, research-based guidelines will help you ensure that you're adequately planning for the needs of your campus community.
