The University of Delaware started to renovate a remarkable yet deteriorating historic building on campus into new, consolidated offices for the College of Arts and Sciences. Due to academic and budgetary factors, the project was halted, then later reiterated as a new Center for International Graduate Students. This case study shows how interdepartmental communication and creative construction delivery methods can help institutions solve multiple administrative and facilities challenges at once. You will leave with a helpful new perspective for tackling your programming and facilities challenges.
- Collaborate with other departments to solve planning and facility problems.
- Leverage existing project resources to minimize expenditures on current projects.
- Use creative construction delivery methods to meet project goals.
- Bring historic buildings back to life through thoughtful design and inventive programming.
