Evolving space needs in four linked buildings near the heart of the ISU campus initiated this study of the building systems to determine how well the existing buildings will support programmatic needs. The Dean of the College and Facilities Planning and Management requested a summative graphic document that would quickly communicate conclusions reached in the study. A series of green-yellow-red color coded plans summarize good-fair-poor conditions for each primary system. A detailed narrative and spreadsheets provide the in-depth information needed to support future maintenance and planning strategies by the University.

BBS Architects | Engineers reviewed existing drawings and performed a visual assessment to prepare the report. Conditions and capacities of each primary site and building system were assessed including primary mechanical and electrical equipment. Architectural spatial quality was also reviewed. Corridor and wayfinding systems, restroom locations and capacities, and general visual characteristics of entrances and primary spaces were documented.
