Towards a Campus Master Plan
To support an upcoming master plan for the 745-acre campus of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, we prepared a space assessment and utilization study of 31 of its primary academic, administrative, sports, and recreational buildings. Visual surveys documented the use and general condition of all spaces within the selected buildings, including updating existing floor plans, and noting accessibility, code-related issues, and overall conditions.
Challenges and Opportunities
Based on classroom enrollment data provided by the Registrar, the planning team analyzed classroom utilization and created dashboards that visually depict assignment and use of each space and the building as a whole. Using the dashboards, we interviewed key stakeholders to identify current space challenges, opportunities for improvement, and future needs. In addition to considering how a master plan could better support the curriculum, we identified the need for a comprehensive capital improvements program addressing more immediate maintenance and repairs.
