Facility Master Planning

Examining current facility space and developing options for future facility needs.

Our facility master planning process begins with a strategic market assessment and demand analysis. This will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your current and future market. Developing a firm understanding of your market ensures your facility plan will be developed around market need.

The next step in the facility master planning process involves a thorough evaluation of your existing space from both a campus and departmental perspective. This includes zoning, access, design, capacity, and flow. We evaluate every major department and compare existing space to contemporary space planning benchmarks. This evaluation is supplemented by qualitative information gathering, on-site tours, and interviews with key organizational stakeholders. This analysis serves as the basis for identifying facility issues, prioritizing needs, and developing options for the future.

Once the facility priorities are identified, development options are created. We guide you through the process of evaluating options that will best address your facility issues. Options are evaluated based on criteria such as access, flexibility, location, and affordability. Once a preferred option is selected, we will provide detailed phasing and capital cost requirements for the preferred option. The end result is a facility master plan tailored to meet your short-, medium-, and long-term development needs.

Our planning process combines qualitative information, detailed quantitative analyses, and unparalleled expertise to provide you with the best, most comprehensive facility master plan possible.
