Design Think: Planning Ahead for a Future Building Campaign

About this session

How can space support your organization’s mission and continue to meet evolving collaboration and communication needs post-pandemic? What can you do to prepare for initial fundraising efforts for a Building Campaign before Design work has been budgeted?
Work space and building needs have changed through the pandemic and will need to adapt as the nature of work and society continue to evolve. There are important questions your organization needs to answer before embarking on a Building Campaign to ensure that the design and fundraising process result in facilities that beautifully align with your Strategic Planning and support your Mission. 
This session will address what a Pre-Design Programming exercise is, how it raises and develops answers to those questions, who it should involve, and how it works. A case study project for a local non-profit affordable housing developer will be presented.
