Single-program buildings are a thing of the past. The new norm is collocating multiple programs in a single building, and the associated challenges of reconciling conflicting priorities, delivering on special requirements and space needs, and managing expectations. Session leaders profile three multidisciplinary building projects and lay out a proven process for building consensus. They examine a set of tools for prioritizing and right-sizing space requirements, identify new space types capable of serving multiple needs, and provide insight into maximizing the use of capital and planning and programming space for disparate groups with populations ranging from 1,500 to 6,000.
