Simple Master Plans Have Advantages
Master Planning does not need to be complex or expensive. Some of the best plans are simple, flexible, not overly detailed and not terribly expensive. One of the advantages to a simple plan is that master plans are often phased over a number of years. When implementing phases in the future, there is a very good chance your needs will have evolved from what you know today.
At CMBA Architects, we are regularly engaged in Master Planning for sites, a building or several buildings and healthcare, business or educational campuses.
Master Planning is known by a lot of different names, and can take a lot of different forms. It’s not one size fits all and our approach is customized to your specifics. It often involves space utilization studies, programming condition assessments, projections of future needs, defining phases and projecting costs.
