University of Delaware Athletic and Recreation Facilities Development Plan

University of Delaware Athletic and Recreation Facilities Development Plan
"This study is needed to outline an internal planning strategy with which the Department can coordinate the allocation of our resources."
Edgar Johnson, Director of Athletics
"I have always had the utmost respect for Joel. He sat through many long, arduous meetings and listened patiently and dealt with each coach as a caring professional. I didn’t forget about Joel’s attention to our project and his dealings with the people here at Delaware."
- Kate Pohlig,
Associate Director of Athletics and Recreation Services University of Delaware

Twelve years after Joel began working for the University of Delaware on the Bob Carpenter Sports and Convocation Center, the Department of Athletics and Recreation invited SportsPLAN Studio to assist the University with a special planning project.

SportsPLAN Studio conducted a campus workshop to understand the program and facility needs of the various campus stakeholders, and we are developing an objective priority analysis. The evaluation criteria include issues of relative cost, operations and policy, recruiting and marketing value, shared use benefit, sequential development, gender equity and safety.

To illustrate alternative concepts and sequences, SportsPLAN Studio is producing computer plans and diagrams for more than thirty specific construction projects.
