    The Counting House first floor has three exits in the front and one exit in the rear. The second floor has an outdoor staircase on the north side that goes to the parking lot. The second floor also has a door on the south wall that leads to the roof of a one story section of the building. There is an elevator and a staircase in the Counting House that lead to the passageway which connects to the three halls.

    The Counting House is not in close proximity to any building.

    The Counting House is basically a data collection and communications center. It will contain extensive instrumentation, control, and computer equipment.

    As many as 25 people could be in the Counting House when experiments are in progress in all three halls.

    The Counting House is a two-story building. Construction is similar to that of MCC and CEBAF Center. The exterior walls are flat metal panels. Concrete floors and steel I beams provide support.

    Fire Protection:
    The Counting House has a wet pipe sprinkler system, including and under floor system in the three data collection rooms. The Counting House has a fire alarm system with 5 pull stations on the first floor. There is a fire alarm panel in the Counting House and one at the Machine Control Center. This building is outfitted with ionization smoke detectors. There are five dry chemical fire extinguishers on the first floor, and two on the second floor.

    Loss Potential:
    The loss of Counting House would be a major setback to the experimental program.
