A Different Kind of SMART
In this presentation, we discuss how to identify and select appropriate metrics—equally focused on education and research—for evaluating “SMART” research laboratories.
Data-Informed Design Decisions
Come learn how data-informed design can inform your next building project, guide space allocation, and minimize the need for new construction on your campus.
Designing the Money
In this session, we'll share how Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) applies a standard process to address its unique capital needs and withstand the test of time. CSCU maintains its 10-year capital plan in a dynamic environment to remain relevant and resilient for allocating resources equitably between its sixteen campuses with optimal effect.
How to Craft a Living, Data-Driven Facilities Master Plan
In this session, you will learn how the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor’s College of Engineering created this responsive master plan that acts more as an interactive set of tools than a static document.
No Net New Space
We'll share the process used at Longwood University to reallocate existing space to align with a new core curriculum centered on deep learning, creativity, and collaboration—and will demonstrate how your institution can use it to assess existing space, reallocate underutilized space, align budget, and advocate for student and faculty buy-in.
From the onset of COVID-19, Moore College has demonstrated how a dense urban campus can adapt to the new normal by transforming common space for maximum use to enhance the creative arts education pedagogy—join us to learn about their innovative strategies.
Reaping the Benefits of a New Building? Without Building New
In this session, we'll demonstrate how to renovate your campus spaces to maximize programming and performance, using a planning approach that addresses the unique challenges of modernizing existing buildings, accommodating future-focused programming needs, and minimizing operational costs.
Planning for Higher Education Journal
As designs for an institution and its spaces are considered, decision makers should seek a balance between offering areas for quiet work that requires intense concentration and for social engagement and the sharing of ideas.
The Spectrum of Space and Capital Planning in Florida and Georgia
The Florida State and Georgia University Systems employ varied approaches to their space standards, planning, and capital programs. We’ll compare these approaches and discuss best practices for determining the effectiveness of space use and the planning process.
