The Strategic Capital Planning Engagement Framework

A financially responsible capital plan begins first with a deep understanding of your institutional mission and vision. By engaging with institutional experts, leaders and decision-makers we ensure that we’re centering the plan around your mission, rather than subjective decisions based on static project lists.

Establish a Baseline Assessment

Establish a Baseline Assessment

Rather than spending significant effort on a detailed assessment before a clear strategy has been established, we start with a simple and accurate baseline. This allows us to focus effort on the most important campus issues to develop an effective short- and long-term plan.

Set Priorities and Develop Campus Portfolios

Developing a portfolio approach will allow for a focused investment based on the institutional strategic direction. Creating buy-in to a portfolio approach will allow for simplified communication with institutional leaders and increased autonomy for project selection.

Build Strategic Scenarios That Represent Possible Funding Models

Build Strategic Scenarios That Represent Possible Funding Models

As 2020 has shown us, the future is inherently uncertain, and plans need to be flexible enough to accommodate various possibilities without breaking. Creating different funding scenarios will stress-test the plan and allow institutional leaders to determine the optimal path forward.

Create Tactical Plans for Specific Facilities

Create Tactical Plans for Specific Facilities

We’ll perform focused assessments on the most critical buildings as determined through the planning process. Our detailed assessment adheres to ASTM standards and includes our higher ed-specific RSMeans data. By prioritizing and planning first and assessing buildings as they become relevant to the plan, each dollar gets stretched further.

“When we have senior administrators and faculty members on our budget advisory group asking, ‘Why are we paying for this instead of that?’, it’s easy to justify our investment practices and priorities with the data and comparative insight we get from Gordian.”
