This year at Build Boston, I will be presenting the session “Municipal Facilities Plans: Strategies for Success”. Build Boston, now in its 27th year, is the Northeast’s largest architecture trade show and conference, and is a great resource for the design community.
The session synopsis is as follows:
Title: Municipal Facilities Plans: Strategies for Success
Description: To properly support the many and changing roles of government and civic operations, municipal facilities plans require determinations of building options and optimal use for civic functions, an understanding of the special needs of municipal offices and uses that may fill them, and just as importantly, knowledge of the means and methods for local budget decisions. When dealing with multiple government offices and functions that have very different needs and programs, a comprehensive planning approach can promote efficiency and lead to support by the end users and budget support through informed public decision-making. Participants will learn about successful strategies in the unique planning, programming and phasing of spaces, buildings and facility types managed by municipalities.
