Innovation in the design and construction of educational buildings can happen in the proprietary sector as well as in public and private, nonprofit institutions. Convincing evidence is to be found in the story of two new technical schools built for Bell and Howell Schools, a subsidiary of the Bell and Howell Company. The two projects involved the finely orchestrated application of three major innovations in planning and construction--the use of systems components, fast-track planning, and construction management. The results: two handsome and functional buildings, optimum adaptability to changing educational programs, low cost, and a total design and construction time of only nine months.
