Successfully competing for limited funding depends on demonstrating that 1) existing space is being well utilized, and 2) more space is needed to meet projected enrollment. Here you’ll see the methodology the University of North Carolina system used to answer those questions for STEM academic space. Session leaders detail space utilization and condition assessments, capacity calculations, and projections, as well as the critical details showing a more complete and persuasive picture of capital project needs. They illustrate how the data is now being used to create an ongoing, equitable capital funding request process.
