A combination of new construction and renovation can optimize space while remedying previous planning problems. Yale University's new Yale Science Building and its associated renovation projects illustrate how a new facility can integrate under-utilized space, meeting program needs and connecting existing science buildings. We'll share the planning methodologies and design processes used in a project this complex, along with technical challenges unique to building and renovating science facilities.
Learning Outcome 1: Describe how the Yale Science Building planning and construction process was balanced with the project's budget.
Learning Outcome 2: List the pros and cons of reutilizing existing space over all-new construction.
Learning Outcome 3: Identify opportunities in which old planning problems can be remedied with a combination of new construction and renovation interventions.
Learning Outcome 4: Implement long-term construction phasing plans early in the design process.
