Preliminary Findings

Master Plan Facility Utilization, and Space Needs Analysis

April 14-15, 2004


  • Process/Methodology

  • Classroom and Laboratory Utilization

  • Preliminary Space Needs Analysis


  • Collection of Data

    • Room-by-Room Facilities Inventory

      Field Verification

    • Fall 2003 Course Data

    • Fall 2003 Staffing Information

    • Enrollment and Staffing Projections


  • Worksessions with campus constituents

    • Discussed future programs and growth

    • Toured facilities and specialized spaces

  • Analysis of Space Needs for Base and Target Year

    • Classroom and Teaching Laboratory Utilization Study

    • Classroom Benchmarking

Major types of methods
Major Types Of Methods

  • Guideline application by space type

  • Square feet per FTE student or faculty

  • Peer/aspiration institution comparison

  • Benchmarking

Guideline tools
Guideline Tools

  • University Space Planning by Bareither & Schillinger (1968)

  • WICHE Higher Education Facilities Planning and Management Manuals by Dahnke, Jones, Mason, and Romney (1971)

  • CEFPI Space Planning for Institutions of Higher Education (1985)

Guideline tools cont
Guideline Tools cont.

  • ACRL – Association of College & Research Libraries

  • ACUI - Association of College Unions International

  • Benchmarking

    • Science labs

    • Art labs

    • Specialized spaces

Range of guideline application uses

Detailed space needs analysis

Pure guideline application

Guideline with

judgments and adjustments

Range of GuidelineApplication Uses

Planning definitions
Planning Definitions

  • ASF = Assignable Square Footage

    (usable space assigned to a program that is measured from inside wall to inside wall)

  • Space Categories – defined according to Room Use Code designation and departmental assignment

  • Room Use Codes – defined according to NCES Postsecondary Education Facilities Inventory and Classification Manual

Classroom teaching laboratory utilization analysis

Classroom & Teaching Laboratory Utilization Analysis

Classroom lab utilization
Classroom & Lab Utilization

  • Measures of utilization

    • Weekly room hours of use

    • Student station occupancy

Utilization components
Utilization Components

  • Weekly room use hours (The number of hours per week a room is in use)

    • Some guidelines are based on 45-hour week (9 hours per day, 5 days per week), others on 70-80 hour week, others on all hours

    • Classroom guidelines are generally between 22-40 hours per week

    • Laboratory guidelines are between 11-24 hours per week depending on the type of lab

Utilization components1
Utilization Components

  • Student station occupancy percentage(The average percentage of seats occupied during any given hour)

    • Classroom use targets are between 60% to 70%

    • Laboratory use targets are about 70% to 80%

Enrollment projections
Enrollment Projections

Staff and Faculty growth mirror student enrollment projections and desired student/faculty ratio

Includes approved faculty positions

Library guideline
Library Guideline

Existing Cobb Library: 22,900 ASF

New Library: 37,784 ASF

Space needs analysis academic space
Space Needs Analysis Academic Space

  • Classroom space in relative balance – station size

  • Largest deficit in teaching labs

  • Research (capstone and faculty)

  • Deficit in quantity of office and support space

Space needs analysis academic support space
Space Needs Analysis Academic Support Space

Library deficit base year - surplus at target year

Recreation deficit

Assembly and Exhibit deficit

Does not include Chapel

Does include Dendy-McNair

Space needs analysis auxiliary other space
Space Needs Analysis Auxiliary & Other Space

  • Athletics' offices

  • Student Union and Health Care in relative balance

Space needs analysis campuswide total space
Space Needs Analysis Campuswide Total Space

  • Most critical:

    • Teaching Laboratories

    • Academic Offices/Administration Office Quality

    • Assembly & Exhibit

    • P.E./Recreation/Athletics

    • Classroom Size Distribution

Space needs analysis continuing education center
Space Needs Analysis Continuing Education Center

  • Includes programs of Special Programs Division such as LDI, ESL, Senior College, PEL, Elderhostel, and ASPEC

  • Additional Space required for Administrative Offices

Space needs analysis outcomes
Space Needs AnalysisOutcomes

  • Deficit in science laboratories and research

  • Integrated administrative functions

  • Bring together Collegia

  • General lack of office support space

  • Qualitative and quantitative space issues relative to fine and performing arts

  • Qualitative space and size issues related to classrooms

Space needs master plan development
Space Needs & Master Plan Development

  • Use guideline ASF for migration scenarios

  • Keep in mind distribution of ASF by functional space type

  • Program adjacency as important as space needs

  • Use master plan analysis as stepping stone to feasibility studies

  • Remember this is master plan level analysis
