Deep-rooted in our firm’s history is our complete understanding that facilities are driven by the user program. Master planning allows this focus to be implemented from the beginning and to permeate many aspects of the building and site designs.
Master planning is the key in utilizing facilities to the fullest extent. By looking at the big picture, opportunities can be maximized and facility needs can be mitigated. For example, when working with our education clients, district-wide analysis of condition, capacity, expected enrollment and educational directives create informed placement decisions to create the best value in facility investments. At the site level, existing conditions and environmental context are used to promote the best land use and create a logical circulation system.
SKW offers expertise on how to structure and facilitate a master planning process for your organization on the district-wide or site specific scale. We listen, learn and respond with strong solutions that are relevant, harmonious and sensitive to the surrounding environment. The options put forward will reflect your needs, directives and vision.
