A shift in higher education space planning

Tradeline's conference will share details on the new facility plans and space planning initiatives that leading institutions are putting in place for success.

"A big shift in higher education space planning and capital projects is underway. New academic priorities are shaping space planning initiatives and facility plans for a very different higher education future. Campus space and facility planning decisions must now incorporate new demands for data-driven decision making, improved space utilization, shared resources, expanded flexibility, reduced costs, improved recruitment, and new avenues for financing and funding of capital projects," explains Tradeline. 

"This requires a shift in thinking toward buildings, spaces, and assets that generate revenue and add long-term institutional value for multiple parties with shared interests."

The conference will see attendees from colleges and universities, consultants, and service providers interested in the planning, design, construction, and operation of college and university facilities and campuses.
