CAMPUS PLANNING PROCESS
This handy APP is designed to help you think through the common factors involved in many campus planning processes. Whether you are considering a comprehensive master plan or a feasibility study for a single building, the APP helps you assess where you can invest your time and resources and what comparative impact these choices may have on the duration and cost of your planning effort.
Consider each of the factors below, assessing the potential extremes of each area of activity and assigning a value to the appropriate level of investment or involvement desired for your planning project by moving the button along the scale.
To best design an appropriate process, begin with by forming a clear statement of the primary objective of your planning effort. Consider discussing the objectives and the various factors with your team members to develop a balanced view of the work. What is the question? What is your product? Who is it for?
All of the factors above influence your planning project’s schedule and budget in some way. This APP assigns weight/impact to each of the factors according to some highly generalized assumptions. It is not intended to be scientific, but should provide a dynamic illustration of the interaction of the factors in your process.
