Through the use of real-time data, institutions can overcome budgetary constraints for capital projects by maximizing space utilization through shared resource planning and optimization. We’ll discuss how we leveraged metrics and space utilization studies to achieve a unifying one-building solution for all engineering programs at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville rather than the original master plan vision for three buildings. Come learn how data-informed decision making can help you lead a collaborative planning process at your institution to develop multidisciplinary solutions that overcome limited capital dollars.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Apply and analyze data sources to navigate financial constraints and collaboratively develop functional and desirable solutions.
  2. Describe space metric strategies to build less but create more through multidisciplinary and shared space approaches.
  3. Evaluate optimal interdisciplinary engineering laboratory designs through the application of space metrics during the design process.
  4. Employ data sources such as class scheduling, equipment utilization, and space occupancy to find efficiencies during programming.
