Project Planning & Facilities Programming

Our planning staff work closely with clients to identify the primary goals and objectives of their project, define their specific needs, and develop potential solutions. Pre-design activities vary but typically focus on assessment of existing conditions, site evaluation, analysis of space and/or utility needs, development of conceptual design scenarios, definition of the scope of work, determination of costs, development of potential completion schedules, and reconciliation of needs and resources.

For large building renovations, new buildings, and major site improvement projects, the development of a comprehensive facility program document will be required. The typical process extends over a period of six to twelve months and may engage a large number of campus constituents. For more information on this process, see this guide. Click here.

Depending upon the size and complexity of the project, we provide in-house planning services or manage the services of an architecture, engineering, or planning consultant.

Below are two examples of diagrams to support the Facility Program for the proposed Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building.
