Sasaki’s planning work at University of the Sciences in Philadelphia was featured in Tradeline, a publication and conference series that focuses on highly technical facilities on corporate and institutional campuses. The Tradeline article explores Sasaki’s unique analysis tools such as collaboration surveys that helped inform the University of the Sciences campus master plan and its lab master plan.
The article emphasizes Sasaki’s distinctive system-based approach that uses both qualitative and quantitative data to plan and build efficient, flexible, and long-lasting health science spaces. “It is an ongoing, dynamic process, where we look at the best possible use of the type of spaces available,” said Jane Kleinman, Sasaki’s Director of Health Sciences and Experiential Education, in the article. “If we are talking about classroom space, we think about who else might need it. Based on utilization studies we can understand the use and the flow to make better decisions.”
