Manning Architects was commissioned to perform an existing conditions review and a space needs analysis to review Southern University’s 1985 plan. The existing conditions review included an analysis of existing land use patterns, condition of existing buildings, campus infrastructure, parking and circulation, and landscaping and grounds. In addition, Manning performed a review of current financial and capital improvement information. The space needs analysis evaluated the size and use of each building on campus. The resulting report helped determine the space needed for each department to function most effectively.
In 2008, Manning Architects was selected to update master plan from 2000 in order to address the shifting population within the New Orleans campus resulting from the damages caused by Hurricane Katrina.
