Vision, meet reality.
The master planning process allows schools to understand the total capacity for their site, and plan their future accordingly.
A campus master plan is a vision for common goals, framework for decisions, guideline for resource management, and a communication tool—a living document. Master planning empowers your school to align its built environment with its strategic plan even as education evolves.

Growing with the College Campus
Juniata College serves more than 1,600 students on 110 acres of rolling hills and like all growing campuses, the need for new additional space and updated facilities challenged the school.
Our expertise was acquired to examine and study necessary improvements to the campus that would be anticipated for the next 15 years. We created a plan that reflects and enables the educational philosophy of the campus; promotes and builds community on campus and with adjoining neighborhoods; and creates a sustainable campus that is energy efficient. All spaces were utilized in order to optimize the enrollment to available square footage. The aesthetically pleasing plan responds to the campus context and design element yet remains flexible to respond to enrollment and financial changes in the future.
Key issues analyzed included the addition of future buildings on campus; renovation of existing facilities; ADA issues and modifications; improved street and landscaping features; maintenance issues and costs; space utilization to justify renovations and new facilities outline campus utility infrastructure improvements to support master plan.
We're ready to lock arms and work with you.
We believe the best master plans are born out of relationship. Knowing you is our goal—when we know you, we can help you adapt nimbly to opportunities and evolving strategies in education, creating a built environment that rises to meet the challenges and joys of educating students.
