In an effort to respond to the demands of new academic programs, expanding technology, and a more diverse and increased student population, the administration of Southern University at Shreveport undertook an update of its facilities master plan in 2000. Manning Architects was commissioned to perform an existing conditions survey and a space needs analysis as a part of this planning process.
The existing conditions review included an analysis of existing land use patterns, condition of buildings, campus infrastructure, parking and circulation, and landscaping and grounds. Manning Architects also performed a review of current financial and capital improvement plans. The space needs analysis evaluated the size, function, and actual use of each of the campus buildings to determine departmental space needs and to maximize the efficiency of their use.
