Master Planning

Managing assets across campus requires a process that combines insightful analysis with innovative and inclusive stakeholder engagement to create a flexible plan for the future.

Managing the operations of distributed organizations and facilities is complex as institutions deal with growth, internal changes, and external pressures. brightspot uses an integrated planning approach to analyze the current state, forecast the future, and develop practical strategies to get there.

We engage stakeholders from across campus to create a comprehensive plan that provides short- and long-term improvements to provide the right kinds of space, in the right quantity, and in the right place. With a master plan in hand you will be able to assess upcoming opportunities, allocate resources, and flexibly implement the plan in a phased and coordinated way – and understand the operational and organizational changes involved.
