Administrative Offices

When designing the administrative office portion of the PraiseBuilding, it should be placed close to the main entrance area. The placement of the administrative offices should allow one to enter the PraiseBuilding to take care of administrate business without wandering throughout the complex. Additionally, by placing the offices closest to a main entrance, one can zone the heating and air conditioning to allow for efficient heating and cooling of the this space, without having to heat or cool the entire PraiseBuilding space to the same extent. A trick of the trade is to install a safe into the concrete floor of a closet of one of the administrative offices. This safe is then covered with a piece of carpeting, which can be lifted, for easy access.
