Through a collaborative process with a wide range of campus stakeholders, the SRG team created a campus development plan for the College’s existing 102-acre site, as well as a plan for its newly purchased, undeveloped 54-acre Hawks Prairie site in Lacey, WA. The Master Plan will guide development of specific campus programs and facilities for the next 20 years while providing a long-term vision for the next 50 years.
102 acres existing campus, 54 acres new site
SRG assisted the college in evaluating its existing program mix, as well as projecting future program needs. The plan balances development between the two campuses; is environmentally responsible and minimizes the impact of buildings and operations on the site; and provides the flexibility to accommodate future shifts in program thinking.
The new Hawks Prairie Campus Plan included creating a distinctive identity and sense of place; sharing an architectural consistency to create a cohesive visual environment; and taking full advantage of the site’s natural features, including abundant trees and a stunning southeast view to Mt. Rainier.
