Space Planning

Campus Planning and Major Capital Projects Planning

The Office of Planning and Institutional Research manages and coordinates campus planning as well as the planning and schematic design phases of major construction and renovation projects at the University.  Planning work is carried out in close cooperation with the Department of Facilities to ensure a seamless transition through completion of design and construction, which are managed by the Department of Facilities. 

Space Planning / Annual Space Survey

The Office of Planning and Institutional Research (OPIR), in partnership with the Provost’s office, conducts the annual campus-wide space survey.  The primary goal of this ongoing survey process is to help the Provost's office and senior leadership understand and plan for meeting the needs of departments and administrative units.  It is essential that we have a clear picture of how we currently use the 2.76 million square feet on our campus.  During the survey process, space administrators across the University are asked to review the previous year's information about space use and occupancy and to update any information that is no longer accurate.

Space Management and Planning System

Brandeis University's space management and planning system is FM:Interact, from FM:Systems. OPIR is working with units across campus to provide them with access to space-related information and the ability to run graphical and other reports that are of help to them.
