MASTER PLANNING

Sherlock, Smith & Adams’ multi-disciplined professionals have experience in all levels of master planning. Whether it is a master plan to ensure the future functionality of a single facility, or a master plan to meet the projected needs of an entire campus, the approach that we use is the same. We work with the client at a very detailed level to identify projected changes in concept of operations, staffing and workload, and to determine future requirements. We compare these requirements to the existing situation and develop a logical plan to meet future needs. Throughout the process, we consider operational phasing, temporary space and workarounds, as well as economics and financial viability. Master plans are living documents. Although they are based on the best information available, they provide a logical direction for change and are not necessarily the ultimate solution. This is critical so that as inevitable changes occur, the master plan can adapt to meet those adjusting needs.
