Crafting cohesive responses to important challenges
Working together, we assess market demands, delivery of services, and operational models to support the vision and mission of your institution.
Through interactive work-sessions, we evaluate functional and physical planning options to meet your short and long-term business and strategic goals.
We capture a set of “first” impressions of your campus and create concrete objectives for enhancing the users’ experience.
Through an analysis of existing space and comparison to national and peer institutional benchmarks, we uncover areas of inefficiency or shortfall across your organization.
Using direct observation and in-depth review of scheduling data, we assess targets of opportunity for lean process improvement in departmental or organizational workflow.
We analyze current and future capacities and develop “what if” scenarios using interactive and analytical methods to align operational targets with industry benchmarks.
We establish space needs and future operational models based on ideal workflow concepts, key requirements for each department, and important adjacencies within and between departments.
We develop capital investment plans based on logical project phasing aligned with funding cycles.
Successful organizations are constantly evolving. They understand who they are. They know what they wish to become. And they have a plan for getting there.
At Christner, we move beyond the traditional realm of architecture to create a framework for long-term planning. We are meticulous about uncovering the market forces, demographic trends and business economics you need to make important decisions about your future facilities. Our goal: strategic facility plans that reflect your enterprise strategy.
