||Economic motives have caused crawl spaces originally intended only for sanitary service to be used for other services and to be reduced to dimensions which fail to take account of potential drainage problems and of the need for human access. Errors to be avoided in building design are analysed, with emphasis on the importance of considering the piping system of a building from the earliest stages (access, headroom, preparation and movement of materials). Minimal requirements for the installation and operation of a piping system in tunnels used as crawl spaces are suggested (dimensions, access, floor, lighting, working methods).
