Abstract: Temporary enclosures and heating activities during the construction of the Laboratory Building Addition, University of Alaska, were observed during the winter of 1973-74. Methods for providing enclosures and temporary heat are described; a total cost of $14,110, or 0.79% ofthe construction contract price, is estimated for these activities, which focused mainly on the first floor of the three-story building. Records of temperatures inside and outside the building were maintained, and a least squares linear regression relationship with correlation coefficient 0.523 was developed between these temperature differences and the heating requirement. Extensive photo documentation was developed, part of which is contained herein.
