To better understand current utilization, efficiency opportunities and strategic physical needs, the School of Medicine is evaluating two departments.
The final series of reports will include resource assessment, departmental utilization, a 5-year space needs analysis and departmental opportunities and constraints. This pilot will provide departmental study templates, enabling WUSM to complete a full campus review of all research spaces in support of a new research/animal facilities.
The information will allow WUSM to:
» Improve interdepartmental efficiencies
» Identify usable blocks of space
» Determine potential departmental relocations
» Support restacking efforts of the campus’ research spaces
» Better manage grant dollars and space
The pilot also will provide the initial framework to support the campus’ development of a research physical master plan, to be completed in subsequent phases.
