Facilities planning is the development of a forward-thinking strategy for the management of a single facility or an organization’s complete portfolio of space that supports operations.

As planners, MAKERS helps organizations make facilities management and investment decisions that are strategic, defensible, and actionable. Our experience includes over 100 space needs and facility planning projects for industrial, administrative, public safety, recreation, and mixed-use facilities. Our approach to facilities planning has been honed over 40 years of practice and emphasizes:

  • Maintaining a strategic focus on information needed for facilities investment and management decision-making,
  • Building support for outcomes through robust, creative engagement,
  • Leading a transparent process that is built upon objective, un-biased analysis of data, and
  • Developing actionable recommendations that rely on accurate costs, innovative financing, phased implementation, and scalable solutions.
