Description
The research wing constructed in 1955 as an addition to the Administration building ceased to house research activities in 1982, the year in which the new Research Center was added. At the later date, the 1955 structure became a functional administrative structure. The plans contain 5 subsets: A-1--A-14, architectural drawings; S-1 -- S-6,structural drawings; M-1 --M-7, mechanical drawings; E-1 -- E-2, electrical drawings; and CE-1 -- CE-2, civil engineering drawings. The collection lacks sheets A-2, A-4, and A-7. Various revisions are available and interfiled in the basic set: A-3, A-5, A-10, S-2, S-3, S-4, M-1 -- M-7, E-1 and CE-1. One sheet numbered Alternate A is also interfiled within the set.
