There are literally hundreds of applications for deep analytics in planning and design projects, not to mention the many benefits for construction teams, building owners, and facility managers. We profile some early successful applications.
SCUP member and author Gregory Janks provides heft to this Building Design & Construction article, which includes a nice Brown University mini-case study, with data maps. He says: “What we’re trying to promote is more isn’t necessarily better; better is better.”
Janks is author of of the SCUP booklet, Kings of Infinite Space: How to Make Space Planning for Colleges and Universities Useful Given Constrained Resources, and co-author of a recent article in Planning for Higher Education titled "New Metrics for the New Normal: Rethinking Space Utilization Within the University System in Georgia."
SCUP members can look forward to a follow-up article to "New Metrics": "Formula’s End: The University System of Georgia's Space Data and What it Means," to be published shortly in Planning for Higher Education.
