Master Planning

Master Planning Creates a Roadmap for Future Potential

RLPS master planning services help you explore the potential for program and infrastructure updates. The end result is a framework for sustained growth and long-term vitality while supporting strategic plan objectives.

Whether a feasibility study, facility evaluation or strategic planning our approach considers the issues shaping optimal building organization and development through new construction and/or additions and renovations.

We understand that effective planning requires multiple professional disciplines working together. Therefore, our process provides an efficient forum for collaborative review and input with development teams, land planners, programming consultants and financial advisors.

Watch our Design Charrette Video

One of the tools we use for many of our campus master planning projects is the design charrette.
Our charrette is an intensive and interactive series of concept reviews, discussion and plan revisions.  It provides an efficient forum to evaluate options and build consensus on future direction.

Are You Really Ready? The Numbers Behind Successful Senior Living Projects

Before starting your next senior living master planning or design project, make sure your team has “solved for x” and mastered the numbers that must align for a successful end result.

Campus Master Planning

Whether senior living or university master planning or a K-12 feasibility study, our team looks beyond site and building considerations to evaluate every aspect of the campus experience.

Campus planning includes considerations for:

  • accessibility,
  • walking distances,
  • service deliveries,
  • environmental sustainability,
  • community connections
  • and operational considerations.

We draw on input from various stakeholders to address diverse campus and facility requirements to meet future program objectives. The over-arching framework provides a clear plan to direct short term projects in conjunction with long term goals, allowing for minor changes in the future.

Interior Design Master Planning

Interior design master planning and branding alignment is an integral component of a comprehensive campus plan.

It facilitates uniform quality and a consistent style. It also defines a hierarchy of spaces through defined standards and guidelines appropriate to the functional role of each area.

Including interior design in your planning efforts will yield:

  • an enhanced campus image and consistent brand identity,
  • a cohesive evaluation of short- and long-range planning considerations
  • and more efficient processes in selection of finishes and furnishings.
