NOTICE The Federal Construction Council (FCC) is a continuing activity of the Building Research Board of the National Research Council (NRC). The purpose of the FCC is to promote continuing cooperation among the sponsoring federal agencies and between the agencies and other elements of the building community in order to advance building science and technology-particularly with regard to the design, construction, and operation of federal facilities. Currently, 16 agencies sponsor the FCC. As part of its activities, the FCC periodically publishes reports like this one that have been prepared by committees of government employees. Since these committees are not appointed by the NRC, they do not make recommendations, and their reports are not reviewed and approved in accordance with usual NRC procedures. Consequently, the reports are considered FCC publications rather than NRC publications. For further information on the FCC program or FCC reports, please write to: Executive Secretary Federal Construction Council Building Research Board 2101 Constitution Avenue, N.W. Washington, DC 20418
