Our experts have served over 75 campuses in 21 countries, influencing the academic environments of more than 200,000 students. DMZ Planners creates comprehensive facilities master plans for large and small campuses to better facilitate inter-connectivity, future expansion and efficient use of current resources.
A Comprehensive Facilities Master Plan is a guide for translating strategic goals into a phased physical implementation plan. Our Planning Process identifies and prioritizes the institution’s resources to meet current and envisioned future demands.
While master plans encompass the entirety of main campus, the precinct plans focus in detail on the role, use and form of specific areas on campus.
As part of the site analysis process we examine the natural and man-made features currently serving the campus as well as their potential to continue to serve the campus into the future.
We offer a variety of fun and interactive workshops based on best practices and our experiences with campuses similar to yours.
DMZ Planners will reconcile your campus’s building data, identified programmatic needs, and wish lists to prepare the basis for functional and operational goals. We will guide you through a thoughtful, consensus-building process to determine the scope of the planning required.
Instructional rooms are directly related to your institution’s mission. Space Utilization Studies are routinely included as part of each comprehensive facilities master plan. These studies may also be completed as a separate service.
We recommend space inventories be verified and updated on a yearly basis. Regular review provides a campus with a useful planning tool. Please contact us if you would like us to review your space inventory.
How does your campus “stack up” to your peers and aspirational peers? Do you have a specific question about a particular aspect of your campus? Let us help you with that evaluation.
