  3. 3. SESSION OBJECTIVES What to consideration when planning municipal spaces, offices and functions Special needs and requirements for municipal spaces and facilities planning Methods for gaining approval Learning from examples of other municipal facilities plansMUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  4. 4. SETTING GOALS Key Guiding Principles For public projects we believe there are unique and important aspects to the design of functional buildings. The following are the key guiding principles that could apply: Sustainability/Life-Cycle Analysis Strategic Asset Analysis Short term and Long term budget Options Options for Public/Private Cooperation Public Accessibility and Service Delivery Image and LegacyMUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  5. 5. ASSESSMENTS: OPERATIONS Information for Analysis For complex facility planning projects, there are multiple data sources that are considered while refining the recommendations. These include: Municipal operations and management Department operations and management Departmental requests and potential operations Relationships between departments Public user needs Service and response areasMUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  6. 6. ASSESSMENTS: FACILITIES Information for Analysis Facility assessments Facility use and potential Site assessments Coordinated operation opportunities Means, methods and design options to accommodate space needs New technologies Successes in other communitiesMUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  7. 7. DATABASE and Sources of Information Methods DEVELOPMENT Department Database Facility Assessments Inter-Departmental Relationships Delivery of ServiceMUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  8. 8. EVALUATION Comparative Evaluation of Space Needs Use a spreadsheet matrix form for listing, ranking and weighting the facilities and needs against the criteria. The evaluation factors usually include: Service needs and improvements User needs and improvements Short term and long term budget impacts Scheduled and actual growth (demographics and services) Facility O&M costs Areas of deferred maintenance Overall facility conditions and opportunitiesMUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  9. 9. SPACE NEEDS Requirements Specific Space Current methods for measuring space needs have improved with new technologies and new design for the major elements: Office Spaces Meeting Spaces Records FilingMUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  10. 10. CONCLUSIONSLearned Lessons Special attention and consideration should be focused on: A. THE MISSION Municipal departments are “mission centric.” That means they are driven by their limited resources to perform the main functions for the service delivery and are often unable to search beyond their immediate needs for ways to advance consolidation and coordination. That becomes the role of the consultant and town leadership.MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  11. 11. CONCLUSIONSLearned Lessons Special attention and consideration should be focused on: B. SERVICE DELIVERY Agencies typically define their needs by numbers of users or calls for service, and suggest that changes in those numbers are cause for change in staffing and space. However, because of changes, or lack thereof, in the ways those services may be delivered, the real needs could be directed in quite different ways. This in turn must be considered as you program facilities and spaces.MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  12. 12. CONCLUSIONSLearned Lessons Special attention and consideration should focus on: C. PUBLIC ACCESSIBILITY The perception and reality of accessibility and service delivery must be melded together in a way that the public better understands how to obtain those services and how the design functions with them in mind as users. This requires an understanding of public mobility and the changes in mobility and communication.MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  13. 13. CONCLUSIONSLearned Lessons Special attention and consideration should focus on: D. TECHNOLOGY Technology has changed municipal government and the way it functions. Embracing different options in the use of technology to provide interaction and services, while currently a special cost to building design, ultimately provides significant benefit to the community’s capital needs.MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  14. 14. CONCLUSIONSLearned Lessons Special attention and consideration should focus on: E. POTENTIAL REUSE The private reuse potential of municipal buildings is determined by a number of different conditions, but in most cases marketable options can be found. Sometimes it requires knowledge of how the building could be a new opportunity within a particular market sector.MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  15. 15. Planning for Successful Outcomes Laura Wernick, AIA, REFP, LEED AP HMFH Architects, Inc.MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  16. 16. Successful outcomes require planning for community engagement on day one!MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012
  17. 17. Only community members can determine if the burdens required are offset by the long term benefits.MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012

Should metrics be established for energy efficiency payback?MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANS MUNICIPAL FACILITIES PLANSStrategies for Success September 21, 2012

  62. 62. CONCLUSIONS Traditional municipal services are evolving towards a business oriented model of customer service Workplace planning needs to evolve to incorporate operational efficiencies Planning decisions should seize opportunities for strategic efficiencies and larger economic impact.
