ARC was contracted to conduct a third-party review of space use due to recent CNM departmental reorganizations and planned building construction and demolitions to:
  • Make recommendations for future use
  • Identify the best location for various departments based on:
    • Serving the respective clients with ease
    • The size of the department
  • Important adjacencies to other departments
  • Necessary services such as parking for external partners, service to, or close proximity needed for faculty and/or students

ARC identified a variety of space issues, and then used a systemic process to explore the demand characteristics, identify the pre-conceptual amount of space needed, and options to meet the space demand. A preferred option was chosen based on reviews with stakeholders. ARC then developed implementation and transition strategies including raw order of magnitude costs.
