CAMPUS MASTER PLAN:
The purpose of
this project was twofold: 1) to develop a program that accommodates the current
and future needs of the school and strengthens Salpointe Catholicís sense of
identity. 2) to develop a master plan that can be gradually phased, and
that demonstrates foresight, strategic skill, flexibility, creativity and
innovation. The master plan outlined here is the product of a comprehensive
process designed to maximize the potential of the site aesthetically,
functionally, economically, socio-cultural, and environmentally, while filling
the growing and changing needs of Salpointe Catholic. The process begins with
several forms of inventory and analysis: site analysis, including the existing
conditions of the site, and the opportunities and constraints therein.
Simultaneously, a review of case studies and relevant theory is carried out.
Also, interviews are conducted with students, parents, faculty and surrounding
neighborhoods to determine user needs. After analysis, alternative conceptual
plans are created and presented to a campus design review committee for feedback
and refinement. Based on this sort of interaction and the results of these
meetings, the master plan is then created.
