  • Workshop 02: Facility Principles
    Generation of Issues and Campus Principles

    Workshop Two concludes with participants identifying the main/primary concerns that are currently
    limiting the school from achieving its Vision and are used to generate a set of Campus Principles. Very
    simply, Campus Principles are belief statements that describe how Weld 6 matches the educational
    program, expectations and future needs. They are broad statements grounded in the school’s Strategic
    Plan, and provide a background for facility and site decisions and improvements.

    Questions that help in generating these principles:

    • Implications of past efforts and future desires - “What is working and what isn’t?”
    • Define mission, vision, and brand and understand how they have evolved.
    • Implications / Interactions for the “heart” of campus with regards to surrounding open space, facilities,
    preservation, and rehabilitation needs.
    • What changes in conditions and assumptions have occurred in the past 20 years – strategic and
    • What new opportunities have arisen? Cultural approaches? Trends?
    • What are current and future space needs for both facilities and green space?
    • What are the inherent challenges and opportunities in adapting historic structures and land uses for
    viable new uses?
    • Impacts and opportunities to campus function?
    • Impacts and opportunities for user groups such as students, faculty, staff, and the community at-large?
    • Environmental considerations, associated costs, and impact to financial budgets?
    • LEED and/or sustainability goals?
