Space Assessment and Analysis
Space assessments identify the ideal types and amounts of space needed to support institutions, people, and programs.
Our analyses leverage data, engagement, benchmarking, and industry research to illuminate space needs and guide decision making.
High Level Assessments
A high-level assessment examines academic, research, workplace, co-curricular, and support spaces through a campus-wide lens. Space metrics are tailored for each category and are used to model optimal quantities of space. These quantities are then compared to existing space to identify areas of need and opportunity.
The space assessment is an important tool in understanding how decision making can impact campus needs. Our data-driven process builds consensus and takes the guess work out of prioritization.
Projected Future Scenarios
Institutions are constantly evolving. Enrollments grow and contract, new programs are created, policies change. Innovative new ways to work, teach, and learn change the ways in which physical space is used.
Projecting future scenarios allow us to explore the ways in which potential changes may impact space needs. By aligning vision with analysis, we can help clients identify how their physical space can best support their future populations and programs.
The instructional space analysis is a deep dive into these mission critical spaces and can be conducted as a standalone study or as part of a larger assessment.
We use the institution’s course and schedule data to identify how the instructional spaces are being used, when they are being used, and by whom.
We can then develop strategies with our clients that employ changes to time, space, and delivery to improve learning space environments.
Classroom Demand Analysis
We can align the classroom inventory with course demand to identify the optimal mix of room types and sizes to support how instruction is being delivered today.
Future “what-if” scenarios can then explore how changes in course size, delivery, and pedagogy might change the mix of spaces needed.
Most academic buildings include general purpose classrooms even if they are part of a special college or school. The classroom demand analysis can help define and complement a university's inventory helping to identify the needs and demands of an institution.
This helps specific colleges and schools identify what size of rooms are needed across campus and if that space exists within their programmable space.
