Proposal for Floyd Hall: Chemistry Quantum Theory Project


This project proposes to relocate the chemistry quantum theory project into

Floyd Hall, including its secretarial and faculty offices, post-doctoral

student offices, graduate student studios, a library, and a computer

facility. Although most quantum theory students are Chemistry majors, the

facility is located in Williamson Hall, the Physics Building. Floyd Hall

is a very desirable location for quantum theory because of its proximity to

the Chemistry complex.

A second advantage of this proposal is that it will provide a new

function for one of the earliest historic buildings on campus, which now

stands vacant and in disrepair. Floyd Hall was last operated five or more

years ago as studio space and professor's offices for architecture.

Despite recent neglect, the building is still structurally sound and

capable of having a new function without extensive or elaborate structural

reworking, unless the neglect continues.

The quantum theory program will not demand major interior alterations

or gutting of Floyd Hall, thus much of the original structure can remain in

place, in particular the floor framing systems. The basic symmetrical

layout of the building, an important design element in buildings of this

type and period, can be preserved. Thus the existing major east-west and

north-south corridors are incorporated into the new layout of quantum

theory spaces.








I. Program: Quantum Theory Project

Space Area, sq. ft.
A. Secretarial offices: Will be located
directly off corridor. Receptionist
area will have seating for visitors.
Word processor and xerox room requires
counters for paperwork. File room shall
have cabinets for paperwork, equipment
and supplies.

1. Receptionist-secretary 100
2. 2 Secretaries 150
3. Word processor-xerox room 200
4. Mail room 100
5. File room 100

B. Faculty office area: Should be located on
exterior walls to have windows. A computer
terminal will be installed in each office.
The conference room is to have a blackboard.
Typical office furniture will include desks
and chairs, filing cabinets and book shelves.
Vinyl wallcovering for tacking and taping
papers will be installed.

1. Director's office 160
2. Faculty office (9)140
3. Visiting professor offices (4)120
4. Conference room 180
5. Faculty lounge toilets 150

C. Student offices: Should also be located to
provide natural lighting. Two students will
occupy each post doctoral office where a desk
and chair will be furnished for each and ten
students will work in each graduate student
studio. Desks, chairs, and movable partitions
will be placed in each studio. The library
will contain shelving to house the Quantum
Theory research projects.

1. Post-doctoral student offices (15) 85
2. Graduate student studios (2)550
3. Library 600








D. Computer facility: To be a restricted-access
area for quantum theory computer personnel
only. It is desirable to locate the area
adjacent to a mechanical room to control
heat gain more efficiently. If located on
second or third floor, it will make desirable
having an elevator in the building for routine
moving of equipment for off-site servicing,
etc. Flooring will have metal lift-up panels
for connecting wiring and cables.

1. Computer equipment room 600
2. Data reduction office 300
3. Technician's office 100
4. Storage room 100

E. Discussion room: To accommodate groups of
about 30 people and a visiting professor
or lecturer. 400

F. Equipment storage 200

Total net square footage: 7800

G. Circulation and support: 7800 x 30% 2200


Total square feet, Quantum Theory:


10000










II. Program: Administrative offices
