This COMPUTING LABORATORY FLOOR PLAN drawn 15th June 1970 by P.J.F. Edwards was
part of the planning for the installation of the IBM system 370/168 computer.
The computer room is L shaped having a false floor of 2ft square floor tiles.
The size was 54tiles/108ft/33m x 33tiles/66ft/20m. It was designed to contain two mainframe computers,
the old one being phased out and the new one being phased in.
The existing computer was the IBM System 360/67 computer on the right hand side of the plan.
The proposed IBM System 370/168 computer is on the left hand side and shows more detail of the cabinets,
particularly the clearances required to open the cabinet doors and the gates within the cabinets.
