Facility Programming and Consulting

Additional Services

Programming is like a three-legged stool. One leg represents the traditional architectural and engineering issues that most firms readily understand. The second leg includes market and opportunities—understanding what is realistic and desirable to current and future stakeholders. The third leg is economic feasibility. At Facility Programming we focus on all three of these pillars—rather than just one or two—providing a balanced perspective for sound business decisions.

Through our extensive experience, we’ve learned the benefit of analyzing needs for a facility and measuring the success of potential options against specific performance criteria. These criteria can include operational, facility, or financial performance. We provide expertise that enables clients to make smart choices between options such as renovation versus new construction.

Successful projects require an understanding of the context and conditions that surround the project. We lead your key staff members through a stringent definition process, determining all the criteria that will impact and ultimately define the scope of a project. We ensure that potentially costly issues are addressed during programming, not waiting until design or construction which typically increases the project cost. Some of these include site location, available utilities, topography, access, relationship to existing facilities, master plan requirements, and code requirements. We examine every detail to make sure we understand your needs exactly. You can count on a thorough definition of your project.
