Space utilization as a sustainable strategy

Thursday, 28 July 2011

Sometimes the most sustainable strategies in higher education are hidden in plain view. That’s Annie Newman’s point in her article “Do more, build less,” which appears as an online exclusive in the July 2011 issue of University Business magazine.

In the article, Annie discusses the ways that institutions can reduce capital costs and environmental impact through wise space use, and the strategies for managing existing space efficiently.

As the leader of Shepley Bulfinch’s planning practice, Annie has conducted space utilization studies for campus across the US and has presented and blogged on the subject for the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) and the Chronicle of Higher Education. Her tips on “Ten things every campus should do before a master plan” appear in Shepley Bulfinch’s planning booklet.
