Sasaki Associates’ 14-month engagement with Case Western Reserve on the university’s master-planning process includes a variety of data-gathering efforts, including:
In addition, they gathered quantitative data on the amounts of square footage dedicated to particular areas, such as classrooms, research labs, offices and parking, to name a few. They then used that data to compare how the space we have compares to other institutions. For instance, Case Western Reserve has 384.3 square feet of non-residential space per student; Johns Hopkins has 178.3 while Ohio State has 271.9. For classroom space, CWRU has 17.1 square feet per student; in comparison, Brown has slightly more at 20.1 while Ohio State has 10.1 square feet per student.
Together, the qualitative data gathered and the feedback from the campus community through surveys, meetings and open forums will help Sasaki determine ways in which we might use our space more effectively.
As Sasaki Associates shares its findings with the public, these presentations will be available on this website.
