Onondaga Community College Facilities Master Plan

Design Brief

Project Location: Syracuse, NY

SUNY Onondaga Community College’s Facilities Master Plan (FMP) provides guidelines to align physical improvements to the campus with the mission, values, and strategic vision of the college as a whole. The FMP develops a framework for coordinating campus activities in response to the college’s core values, demographics, economic context, and projected future trends in pedagogy, technology, and resources.

By analyzing current conditions as well as identifying, prioritizing, and structuring future projects, capital funding can be planned through 2023. OCC required a space utilization analysis specifically for classroom and laboratory spaces to better understand their daily utilization. A larger campus wide study focuses on integrating space needs today with forecasts five years into the future to determine the quantity and priority of facility modifications. By optimizing classroom space utilization, the college will be able to expand its offerings over time to include a Hospital Simulation facility, a Regional Public Safety Training Center, and a new Engineering Hub and Machining Technology Lab.

OCC’s FMP is broken out into a five phased process including: Organization, Vision, Assessment, Options Generation, Recommendations and Master Plan Concepts, and Validation. Throughout this sequence, the input of campus and community stakeholders, staff, and students at the college are included in the decision-making.
