and Planning Seminars for:
interested in planning new facilities
or remodeling existing structures.
leaders describe and explain planning and
design activities needed for building a new
facility or remodeling an existing
The Seminar is customized for a particular
project and organization such as education,
health care, business, or recreation and
seminar is prepared for selected
stakeholders and leaders that want to learn
about the latest aspects of facility design
and how they influence behavior,
productivity, attitudes, and achievement.
Planning is a time consuming activity, but it
saves time in the long run!
a Pre-Design and
organizations do not build facilities
frequently enough, or have a full-time
staff to stay informed about the latest
research-based designs that influence
productivity, behavior, attitude, and
learning. We work closely with
stakeholders to formulate a plan depicting
what the ideal facility should be for
their specific needs.
With facts presented in this
fast-paced seminar, participants will be
better prepared to make sound decisions
regarding the built physical
environment. Beyond the seminar, UGA
personnel may work with an organization
through the entire project to ensure that
stakeholders get the facility that they need
and want. There are many organizations
that never received what the stakeholders
wanted and what management thought it was
paying for. That is, owners have often
paid for something they did not get.
stakeholders should experience this
activity before they launch a capital
project; and before an architect is
hired. The seminar will provide
participants with knowledge regarding how
to communicate their selection of the
latest research-based designs to
architects, engineers, and contractors.
The minimum time to
complete this seminar is 2.5 hours.
