M a n y clubs in the last few years have had to
a d a p t to a declining enrolIment caused by the overall
the military establishment. At the same time
a b r u p t increase in membership at another instalIation.
T h e s e trends require facilities that can adapt both to
e x p a n s i o n and contraction.
Particular attention should be
p a i d to planning those areas in the club that are most
l i k e l y to expand or contract, and structural systems in
p a r t i c u l a r should be selected with a view to their
adaptability to changing functional requirements.
2-2.2 SPACE CLASSIFICATION
T h e format of the space description establishes three
c l a s s i f i c a t i o n s of space as shown in Table 2-4.
Key numbers are assigned
to each space.
A l l plans and sections in this guide are keyed using the
2 - 2 . 2 . 2 Generic Space:
T h e club spaces are classified into 14 generic
The main basis for this classification is the identification of
d i s t i n c t f u n c t i o n a l , e n v i r o n m e n t a l and spatial requirements for each
g e n e r i c space.
2 - 2 . 2 . 3 Space Types:
W h e r e appropriate, generic space is broken down
i n t o variations of the generic space.
T h e basis for this breakdown is the
identification of distinct requirements for the space type within the
g e n e r i c space requirements.
N o t all generic spaces are accompanied by
s p a c e type variations.
This classification represents specific functional
s p a c e s within the generic space, or spaces that are closely associated
I n general, s u b - s p a c e s represent functions that always occur in
r e l a t i o n to the generic space.
2-2.3 SPACE PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT
2-2.3.1 Determining Gross Floor Area: Two basic situations will be
e n c o u n t e r e d in the development of space programs.
The first is the
d e v e l o p m e n t of a space program for a new facility, for which no managerial
or operational experience exists.
T h e second situation is the programing
o f a r e p l a c e m e n t f a c i I i t y o r a d d i t i o n , f o r which operating history of the
existing club will be available.
I n both instances the initial program
a c t i v i t y requires the establishment of a gross floor area for the
