Peralta Community College District selected STV to develop a facilities master plan for Laney College to align with the college’s educational master plan (EMP), which it had recently revised. The EMP integrates facilities, curriculum, faculty, and environment. The District saw an opportunity to align Laney College’s educational benefits with the needs of the local business community in Oakland. STV assessed the ability of campus facilities to meet the goals of the EMP and reviewed divisions, departments, and community programs to evaluate alignment between the two plans. The firm performed an analysis of the facilities’ condition, effectiveness and efficiency. STV also reviewed various renovation, new construction, and demolition alternatives to achieve the college’s physical goals.
