I plan to install a sub panel in the basement. My main panel is in garage. What is code on job like this? What kind of space do I have to have, to install the panel? What kind of room could it be install in? I do not have any open space in the mechanical room, but there is plenty of open space in the future 2nd kitchen that I hope to put in the basement, otherwise it is an open space right now. Please help me out; library is too far away so I cannot find any info on this project.

There are a lot of code questions here to be answered. Questions like, is the sub panel going to be 120 volt or 240 volt? 30 amp, 60 amp, or 100 amp.? What is the load on the panel going to be? Lighting load? motor load, etc. As for installing the panel in the kitchen or any other room, is the proper work space clearence? ( proper space from side to side, and space in front of panel?)You might have to add more information.
