A PKAL Roundtable: Facilities of the Future
Flexibility, Versatility, and Adaptability
Constructing science buildings is expensive, typically representing the highest cost per square foot on campus. Determining the optimal design for a new undergraduate science building is paramount because the opportunity occurs only once every 50 to 100 years on today’s smaller college campuses. The resulting building must support today’s needs and adapt to tomorrow’s advances in technology, the latest in pedagogical theory, and potential changes in use.
